The Four Peaks are the guide to wayfinding.

Local Manmade and Natural Architecture

The Southwest is rich in built and natural architecture. Upon visiting these places, I learned the purpose of the natural environment to the Navajo culture and what it means to them.

My Project Baby/Stressor aka Kitchen

Kitchen photo by Janie Lundgreen

The kitchen is my favorite aspect of our project, mainly because I was in charge of it, but also because I know how much this space means to our community partner and her family. After days of research and countless late nights with the Finish Team, we came up with something that is unique to them and to this project.

Life in Bluff

Let the amount of pictures speak to how great my experience was in Bluff.

I was truly surrounded with the best people and places.
