  • What excites you the most about working for AT this summer? Being out in the fresh air and having adventures and with students who are eager to be there!
  • Favorite outdoor memory? Taking a year off from school and doing a gap semester program in New Zealand and Australia, where I found a way to swim in some body of water every day of the program (63 days in a row).
  • Favorite quote: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” – Dr. Seuss
