Eileen was involved with Wilderness Awareness School when the school first came to Washington in 1995 and attended the first Art of Mentoring workshop. She and her family helped start our first homeschool program, Community School, and organized the Tracking Club.
The Art Of Mentoring has become her foundation in homeschooling her children, teaching in her work, her marital arts and her fiber arts. She has worked as a Respiratory Therapist and currently is a Curriculum Developer and Trainer of the electronic medical records at Seattle Childrens. Through the school she reconnected to her passionate nature by making life long friendships with many wild things, including her œwild human friends.
When not in the woods or behind a computer, she expresses her art through basket weaving in the style of Tapestry and Navajo Weaving.
