She spent most of her youth in the Midwest, where she developed her love of the outdoors. She attended Kemper Hall, an Episcopal high school in Kenosha, Wisconsin, creating a lifetime bond with the Episcopal Church that was the catalyst for much of her later philanthropy. She earned a degree in art education from the University of Minnesota and moved to Southern California, where she pursued her interest in arts and crafts.
