Liz Jesch

Liz grew up in Ithaca, NY, and was first exposed to Primitive Pursuits through the Thursday Homeschool Program. Her relationship with the woods and nature was fostered through attending this program and later transitioning to a Summer Field Instructor. Through these experiences, Liz discovered a profound love for working with young children and helping to facilitate curiosity and enthusiasm in the natural world.

In addition to her love for the woods, Liz is passionate about public health and building healthy communities. She recently graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health and Nutrition and just completed a service year with AmeriCorps. Liz is also currently working towards becoming certified as a Postpartum Doula.

Today, you can find Liz in the woods singing songs, creating fairy houses, exploring creeks, working with fiber art, and making rock paint. She hopes to bring these passions with her to Forest Preschool this year and learn, play, and laugh alongside some sweet preschoolers!
