  • Discern the vulnerabilities of a particular group and point the way to further education or training needed
  • Level the inequities of age and experience…everyone could use some help somewhere about something
  • Appreciate and value unexpected resources that appear through being vulnerable and making requests
  • Often experience a new relationship, or an old one, in a new way

In l997, American Camping Association nationally recognized her for outstanding staff training, and for excellence in writing through numerous articles published in Camping Magazine.
