For newcomers, the Hill can be a wonderous place when it comes to nature and the great outdoors. Olga Coello moved to White Rock in June. She is the newest volunteer at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
Originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador, Coello moved to Santa Fe in 2009. Since moving to White Rock, she said she is happy to be in the mountains and surrounded again by wildlife. “It reminds me of home so I feel very comfortable with the surroundings, the food and the community, and yes, the slow pace,” she said.
After coming to the United States, Coello has lived in big cities all over the United States over the past 20 years, including New York City, Los Angeles, Tampa, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Phoenix. Before moving to New Mexico, she resided in Colorado. “I’ve been around water most of my life, however the beauty of the mountains more than compensates for the lack of it,” Coello said. “New Mexico has many of the same elements of home — adobe homes, mountains, wildlife and nature. There is a larger variety of birds though.”
