Jen Silverness

Osha Washko Binesi Kwe is my Indian name given to me, and it means Thunderbird Spirit Woman.

I received my Master’s degree in Science & Education in Community Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Superior and my  undergraduate in Outdoor Education from Northland College.

In my past life, I was a wilderness instructor and more recently (the past ten years) I’ve been spending my time going to school and building my business (Pioneer Recovery Center). I’m eager to get back into the crafts I knew long ago, and to share my knowledge with others.

I have a passion for learning, teaching and finding Zen through crafting!!!
