Mylinda Baits brings her experience working across cultures both in the United States and internationally. She worked with the S’Klallam community in WA State before living in Costa Rica for over a decade. Having worked alongside beautifully diverse populations throughout the world for almost two decades, she values and honors the deep wisdom, creative expression and resilient healing resources that can be shared through the arts.
