Q: What is your most memorable experience in nature?
In winter, you can get close to places you can't get close to on foot in the summer, and the magnificence of the scenery is impressive.
Q: What does nature represent to you?
I've grown up in nature since I was a little girl, so it's an inseparable part of my life.
Q: What has nature taught you?
People are very small. So I feel a sense of gratitude and humility for being allowed to play in nature.
Q: What do you hope that people will get out of experiences with you as a guide?
I want to offer tours that make people smile and say they had a good time. And I want them to experience the joy of being in nature again.
