  • Why is working for Adventure Treks important to you? I feel strongly about getting kids outdoors to experience and enjoy our public lands while equipping them with skills to continue to enjoy these wild places throughout their life.
  • What excites you the most about working for AT this summer? I am excited to share beautiful views, keep learning about new ecosystems, and eat some delicious backcountry meals.
  • What do you do when not working for AT? Hike more! Ski, kayak, garden, cook, read, and eat good cheese.
  • Favorite outdoor memory? Experiencing a tidewater glacier calving for the first time in Prince William Sound.
