- What excites you the most about working for AT this summer? I am beyond excited to engage in intentional community, embrace challenges, and to share in the joy and awe that can be found in outside places!
- What do you do when not working for AT? I guide naturalist-based trips in glorious outdoors of the Pacific Northwest, teach whitewater kayaking, read, create art in all its forms, and spend as much time adventuring and exploring as possible!
- Favorite outdoor memory? There are sunrises all over the country that stand out as moments of light and joy in my memories of the outdoors: on the summit of Mt. Garfield in the White Mountains of New Hampshire; snuggled up in a sleeping bag at Seneca Rocks in West Virginia; a snowy drive through Sinks Canyon in Wyoming; climbing in Hyalite Canyon in Montana; and most recently, on New Year’s Day from the top of a tiny volcano. I am continually grateful for the incredible humans that have shared these moments of first light with me.
