Caroline is an artist and has a long history of working with community arts engagement to foster connection, creativity and well-being. Since 2000, she has been working with medical patients, as an art therapist and counselor, offering programs and conducting research with well-being programs that combine mindfulness skills learning and creative expression.

Farm to Fork Fondo
STEPS Staff members and residents were involved in running an aid station this past Sunday for a Wrenegade Sports Farm to Fork Fondo. Our Station was on the longest route and bikers stopped for water and snacks. The specialty snack that we served was provided by our own Taste of Wine Country. The bikers were treated to a goat cheese and cherry bruschetta. The goat cheese being from Lively Run Dairy Farm in Interlaken. Our new team member Caroline designed the fun hats that we all wore.
