Beth BrownBeth Brown

I am the Summer Education Intern for Imago during Summer 2017.I have worked as an intern with Crystalaire Adventures in Michigan and most recently as the Kongiganak, AK preschool teacher. I began working with Imago upon realizing that I no longer wanted to use my Early Childhood Education Degree in the traditional classroom. Throughout my time at Miami University pursuing my degree I worked at the Outdoor Pursuit Center, taking people into nature to connect with each other, as well as working and living in Cincinnati during the end of 2015. My passion for learning, the outdoors, and for Cincinnati has finally culminated in this internship. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

Executive Director

I am the Executive Director of Imago and have worked with Imago since 1999 (although not always as ED). Through Imago I've learned the importance of not only teaching people, but connecting with people. Sharing stories, having laughs, hugging trees - these are the things that keep us fighting the good fight. I have two amazing kids, a cat, and a menacing dog. I live in the Enright Ridge Urban Eco-Village - feel free to stop by. Email

Most people call me MD. I am an education student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I love being active and I go out for runs as much as I can. I am trying to be a vegetarian, but so far I am only a pescatarian. I just can’t give up Salmon, especially being from the West Coast. I also love to travel. My fiancé and I went on a 3 month backpacking trip to South America in 2016. One of our highlights was hiking up a volcano and seeing it erupt right in front of us.

Dave HillDave Hill

Staff Naturalist

I began working at Imago in the Fall of 2011 as a naturalist.  Before that I was an AmeriCorps intern with the Enright Ridge Urban Eco-village Farm Project from 2009 to 2011. I received my degree from the Ohio State University in Natural Resources where my major was Environmental Education, Communications, and Interpretation. I have also worked at farms in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Delaware, Ohio, in the fields of sustainable agriculture and environmental education. It is a blessing to be a part of the Imago community and to be working toward its mission.

I am a summer camp counselor intern at Imago and am so excited to be working for the earth and promoting Imago's holistic environmental approach this summer. I am currently a junior at Xavier University majoring in Social Work and minoring in Peace and Justice Studies. I come from Cleveland, Ohio, and enjoy exploring new places, spending time in nature, hiking, writing poetry, and having fun with friends and family. I also enjoy laughing at my own hilarious jokes, eating mozzarella sticks, and smelling candles.
