A Message from Karin
My two dogs and I are excited to become part of the CEC family. Even though I have spent the last 34 years living in Denver, CO, I have always missed the deciduous forest and spring wildflowers so I am excited to be coming back to those. I grew up in Indianapolis and graduated from Earlham College, so in many ways I am coming home and looking forward to being closer to immediate family in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio.
My entire career has been spent in some aspect of environmental education, from teaching in nature preserves, to running education departments in museums, to bringing science to low-performing elementary students. In my spare time, I love farmers’ markets, craft fairs, gardening, quilting, hiking, showing American Saddlebred horses, and travel. I hope you will share some of your favorite community locations and activites as I meet you.
I look forward to being at CEC – as soon as the status of the virus allows!
Looking forward to seeing you soon in person,
