Sue Woodward spent her childhood riding horses and playing in the outdoors. This love of nature led Sue to earn a Bachelors of Science in Wildlife Ecology, focusing primarily on ornithology. After graduation, She worked as a Naturalist for both state parks and nature centers in between working as a zookeeper of North American birds and rehabilitating birds of prey and raising ratites. The More-Than-Human-World is a special place for Sue to find a strong connection that offers health, beauty and solace. Upon discovering the basis and gifts of Shinrin-yoku, the Japanese art of Forest Bathing, Sue studied Forest Therapy and became a certified guide.
