Instructor, Ultimate Northwest 1 & Pacific Northwest Adventure 2
Born in the Pacific Northwest, Amelia was raised in airports and at summer camp. At 8 years old, Amelia left the U.S. for a 10-month family excursion to China, which turned into a six-year journey. Since, she’s traveled around the States and spent several years leading backpacking and rock climbing trips in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, North Carolina, and Utah during her time at Boston College. After joining Adventure Treks for her first season as an instructor, she’ll head to Oregon Health & Science University to begin a PhD program in neuroscience.
