Program Leader

Hi there! My name is Coriander. I grew up in Viroqua, attending Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School and Laurel High School. I moved to Ashland, WI for college, earning a Bachelor's degree from Northland College in Sociology and Social Justice and English. After graduating I moved back home and have loved being surrounded by this amazing, loving, and vibrant community once again. It feels like a big hug. I have 10 odd years of experience working with children: I spent four summers serving as a camp counselor at Sugar Creek Bible, have coached a variety of youth sports, and volunteered for the After School Program at the McIntosh Memorial Library. I love to read, to be outdoors, to be active, and to spend time with my family. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your kiddos!
