I work on my computer all day, so I love a chance to get outside, enjoy nature, and play sports (tennis, volleyball, flag football).  Unfortunately, I don’t have a place to plant my own trees, but TreeFolks gives me a chance to support planting trees all across Austin!

Once I learned of the vital connection between human health and Nature and how to appreciate the wondrous complexity and pivotal role of Trees in the global ecosystem – I was sold! I am a Registered Nurse by profession, mother, wife, and outdoor-lover. I first learned of TreeFolks 4 yrs ago when I volunteered at a planting event. TreeFolksYP allows me to stay connected to this awesome organization!
