Corbin Gonzalez

Instructor, Pacific Northwest Adventure 2

Corbin grew up in Orlando, FL, where he frequented the beach with his family, but it was family visits to Maine that helped developed his love for the outdoors. During his time at the University of Central Florida, he attended two study abroad programs to focus on service learning, and he was a trip leader for their outdoor program. In his free time, you can catch Corbin rock climbing, surfing, and diving. Corbin is joining Adventure Treks for his first season as an instructor.
