Rose has shared her connection to the outdoors as an educator and guide for the past 5 years using her interdisciplinary background in science and humanities. She studied biology at the University of Rochester receiving the Dekiewiet Research Fellowship while studying insect genetics. She has since moved toward a career with fresh air and muddy toes, delivering engaging outdoor programs using wilderness skills and traditional ecological knowledge. This helps her and those she teaches remember what modern humans have forgotten- the magic of fox walking on bare feet or raising awareness levels to notice things you never noticed before. Rose is passionate about interactions that remind us what it is to be humans, keep ancient history alive and tune our minds into something bigger than ourselves. When she isn’t in the woods Rose is in the studio creating baskets, paintings, mixed media works etc exploring times about nature.
