Hi iI’ Katie Vegvary and I am so excited to be a new teacher at Oak Hill Ranch! I have been an outdoor educator and kayak guide for the last ten years on the mighty Columbia River in Washington State. My husband and eight year old son Rownen and I built a tiny house in Washington and started a small farm just a mile from the Columbia River a few years ago. There we raised a big garden, sheep, goats, horses, chickens, turkeys and the best farm dog in the world Nanook!
Last year we relocated back to the Bay Area ( we both grew up here) for Alex’s job, but kept our tiny house up north and visit it every chance we can. I’m a certified early education teacher and have taught preschool and Sunday School. I’ve been a certified Wilderness First Responder for the last ten years and strive to be prepared for any situation.
I love Native American history and have taught myself survival skills and wild foraging. I love to surf, kayak, hike and travel with my family.
