Office Assistant Kathleen feels at "at home" when she is outdoors. She has spent 23 years sharing that passion with others in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Co-directing a wilderness camp with her husband Russ was the perfect place to introduce thousands to this unique ecosystem. Backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, skiing, and dogsledding were just a few of the ways they encouraged others to fall in love with this little corner of the planet. Kathleen notes she was naturally drawn to the North House Folk School because of its mission of learning in a supportive community.
