Participating in Girls on Ice Cascades in 2015 had a huge impact on the direction of my life and I credit it for giving me the courage and support to push my own boundaries. I love working with Inspiring Girls Expeditions because I get to encounter so many wonderful women from a wide range of backgrounds. Inspiring Girls Expeditions curriculum sits at the intersection of science, art, philosophy, adventure, leadership, and stewardship, and it's an incredibly unique and impactful learning experience.
I was a gear fairy for the 2017 Cascades program, and Logistics Intern for 2018. I'm excited to come on board again as Assistant Onsite Coordinator for 2019! I love sharing my passion for wild places and instilling a sense of adventure and resilience in people. The wilderness of the mountains is one of the best places to learn and grow! I'm passionate about expanding comfort zones and building meaningful connections. There is a huge wealth of knowledge and experience in each and every person, and there so much to learn by listening to each other's stories.
Currently, I 'm wrapping up my Bachelor's in Outdoor Education at Western Colorado University, and will go on to obtain IFMGA mountain guide certification while also working for the Forest Service. I split my time between Washington and Colorado, where I enjoy any and all things outdoors, reading, delicious food, and the occasional bluegrass concert.
