I joined ADF in summer of 2011 and attended my first COoR Midsummer ritual with Sierra Madrone Grove. Since then, I have continued to work with ADF to support ADF and its Folk, to form a devotional practice with the Kindreds, and to further my own learning. I completed my Dedicant Program in early 2013 and became a mentor for DP students shortly after that. In summer of 2013, I helped to co-found the Protogrove of the Valley Oak along with three other druids. In early 2017, I completed the Pre-Clergy Study Program and am currently a student in the Clergy Study Program. In March 2017, I was elected to the position of Regional Druid of the Northwest Region after having served as Deputy Regional Druid for 2017.
