Madison R.

Instructor, Alaska Expedition 1

Madison grew up and attended school in Indiana; while at IU, she spent her undergraduate years as a trip leader and gear specialist for the school’s outdoor adventure program. She facilitated many trips for students in southeastern Utah, which quickly became her favorite playground. In her free time, Madison enjoys rock climbing, guiding whitewater rafting trips, and aerial sports. After joining Adventure Treks for her first season as an instructor, she’ll continue pursuing a teaching career.
