As a naturalist, Jade loves to learn and teach about the natural world. As a photographer, she finds joy in capturing her vision with her Yosemite Jade photography, and by helping others to do the same. Jade’s volunteer work as a youth mentor helped her to understand how children see nature. This inspired her to become an environmental educator connecting people, young and old, with the natural world through education and recreation.
Jade is also a Reiki Master of Japanese energy healing, teaching Reiki in Yosemite with the stunning mountains as her classroom. She also leads Yoga hikes, combining a naturalist led hike with the benefits of a yoga session like no other featuring jaw dropping views for a truly magical experience. Jade’s cheerful positive attitude and knowledge of the outdoors makes her a great trail companion.
