Meet Eddie DeGraw
Hello Circle Pines folks! I am excited to meet you all and get the opportunity to get to know you and discover why you love this special place. Here are a few things that may help you get to know me as we begin our work together. To start, I really pride myself on being a creative problem solver and working cooperatively. I am described as a people person that provides thoughtful insights and energizing leadership. I work well while self directed and within teams. I thrive in a role that requires multitasking and attention to details. I have over 22 years of activist and organizing experience and I’m active in the community addressing issues that negatively impact the environment as well as social justice causes. I have a homestead where my husband and I explore permaculture projects and am a master gardener. I enjoy doing occasional freelance illustration and graphic design work and have a degree in Illustration from Syracuse University. I love raising fiber goats and angora rabbits as well as hiking and foraging. I foster and train rescue horses and pursue the unique hobby of mounted archery. I look forward to falling deeply in love with Circle Pines and working diligently to uphold its integrity, rich history, natural beauty and peace and social justice foundation together.
