Cjet Raymond is a part of the NatureYear team, and she works on Saturdays for Open Farm Days, birthday parties and seasonal events. She has an educational background in Art Therapy and has experience with its therapeutic benefits and practical uses in Southeast Asian countries. For 15 years Cjet worked in an after school program, where she discovered a gift for working with young children. She also has worked with many youth in recent years on challenge courses throughout CT, helping teams and classes develop better communication, offering opportunities for personal growth, and allowing people to work through fear, while building trust and self confidence.
Cjet’s passions are thinking creatively, being outside, and figuring things out by exploration. She enjoys peaceful moments: she can lead kids through the woods quietly enough so that deer walk towards them; but all her sillies come out in a good game of ‘everybody’s it’ tag or a quick race to the fence and back.
