Born and raised in Boulder Colorado, I was brought up feeling an affinity for the outdoors. My childhood was spent hiking, climbing, biking and skiing in the mountains that surrounded my home, activities that I still highly enjoy. My love of the Front Range and all things Colorado has only grown over the years, leading me to attend the University of Colorado and pursue a degree in philosophy. My passion for outdoor education was awakened while attending a month long backpacking course in Alaska with the National Outdoor Leadership School. Since then, I have been working with kids at after school programs and summer camps. I cannot wait to see what this summer brings and the potential it will open up for future outdoor opportunities!
