Teacher Heather

Saplings Co-Teacher

I've lived in Portland for 14 years and have a lot of love for the magical PNW. I earned my degree in Social Work which has led me to work with people of all ages and from many different backgrounds. I am very passionate about my work with children and am in awe from all they can teach us. I believe working with young people can be transformative and working with their families can offer a holistic view and help to understand and get to know these little beings as a whole. I have spent the last two years raising my daughter and exploring the natural world together. I love spending my time in the garden and in the kitchen nurturing myself and my family. This deep connection to nature and love for exploration is what drew me to The Treehouse: a Forest Garden School.
