email@example.com Haidee was born and raised in Santa Barbara; growing up in a first generation bilingual household she herself had few experiences in nature growing up. Seeking more than the materialistic things life has to offer she ventured into her spiritual self and found calm in nature. Having two young nephews, she encourages them to spend time outdoors and knows the importance of building a bond with nature at an early age. “Nature is nourishment and vice verse” she often tells them. She is also passionate about working with the youth in our community. Placing a high importance from learning as much from the students as she wishes to teach them. In her spare time you can find her on the hiking trails, in her garden tending to her compost and plants, doing yoga, at the recycling center or finding warmth in the sun.
