I grew up on the Great Lakes in Northern Michigan, but cultivated my communities during school and adventures in the Northwest. After enjoying an undergrad in Geology, I moved to the North Cascades National Park while earning my Master's in Environmental Education/Non Profit Leadership. Throughout school, I spent my summers river guiding in the Southwest. I now live in Tanzania, working for a community based conservation organization, but can't stop dreaming of the adventures I'll have in the midwest and west when I return home. I am very devoted to making the outdoors more accessible and recreating in an environmentally friendly way.
