Helena came to Flagstaff from Simi Valley, CA to obtain her BS in Environmental Science from
Northern Arizona University. While going to school, she worked as an early childhood educator
and became passionate about working with children. She is thrilled to combine both of her
passions in her role with The Arboretum. She loves the focus on environmental education that
The Arboretum provides the Flagstaff community. In her free time, she loves to go on
adventures with her husband and two dogs. Helena also enjoys getting into a good book,
experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, and soaking up the sun.
