Sheila Williams Ridge
LOCATION: Roseville, MN
My name is Sheila and I love this beautiful planet of ours. I grew up in Las Vegas, NV exploring the mountains and deserts of the Southwest with my family. My husband, our four daughters and I live in Minnesota and enjoy the beauty and variety of the seasons in the Midwest. I work at the University of Minnesota as the director of the Laboratory School working with families of young children and training university students to become early childhood professionals. I also teach courses on nature-based learning and co-authored a book on nature-based learning in early childhood. I enjoy hiking, nature photography, canoeing, camping, swimming, and gardening. I love exploring nearby nature in cities as well as wild places around the world.
