Nicolas Piechotte was initially drawn in by the community spirit and clearly articulated vision, and has had his daughters involved with HNS programming all year long since they were 6 years old.  Now they are 10 and he is excited to serve on the board as a way to give back to the school, support enhanced programming and focus on the sustainability of the organization.

Rachel Jones joined the HNS board of directors as Secretary in 2020.  She is excited to be part of an organization that weaves together many of the things she cares about – nature, working with kids, and building community.  She is interested in the intersection of mindfulness and nature connection, and feels passionate about the continuous work of creating an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environment for all HNS participants and community members.
