THE STORY:

Living in NYC for the past four years has given me a tremendous appreciation of parks and natural preservation.  I find myself along with many other New Yorkers frequently retreating to Central Park, grassy areas along the West Side Highway and other nearby preserved land as a much needed break from the fast-paced life in the city.  While I didn't grow up in a rural environment, my immediate and extended family placed incredible value on nature, the importance of recycling and outdoor activities.

I was fortunate to be taught an appreciation and respect for nature from an early age. Whether it was visiting my Grandparents’ farm, hiking with my Dad or skiing, biking, fishing and rafting with my family, I've always enjoyed being outdoors.  These experiences growing up lead me to choose Williams College in a rural, bucolic setting, where I had many outdoor activities at my fingertips.

The Nature Conservancy purchases special places and preserves them forever, allowing generations to experience wildlife, parks and unbelievable natural settings. When my Dad invited me to join him on The Nature Conservancy team in the Safaricom half-marathon, I was quick to accept the invitation to both experience the nature in Kenya and have an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for The Nature Conservancy.
