Meet Our Teacher: Briana Parks
I am Briana, a PNW born and raised nature enthusiast. My husband Dennis and I live here in Vancouver with our 3 young children and 22 pets. My formal education is in healthcare. I have been a CNA specializing in dementia for 10 years.
I currently am the event coordinator at Kiwanis Camp Wa-Ri-Ki in Washougal, creating nature based educational events for families. I have always enjoyed teaching and we decided to begin our homeschool journey two years ago. I really love gardening, hiking, volunteering and exploring new places with my family.
Animals have a special place in my heart and I firmly believe when we nurture, heal and love an animal, we in turn are nurtured, healed and loved. Knowledge is power and both children and adults can learn so much from caring for an animal/pet. I am thankful and excited to be able to share my passion for animals with others and I hope I can enrich other families' and animals' lives through my classes.
