“I have had a rewarding relationship with parks throughout my life. As a young person, I spent summers as a camper in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Pisgah National Forest and as an adult, I find staying connected to the outdoors an essential piece of my wellbeing. My husband jokes that I am like the protagonist in the children’s book ‘When Sophie Gets Angry,’ because the wide world comforts me. I am excited to join NPT in encouraging our youth to find their own connections with the outdoors and in supporting our nation’s natural resources.”
