Though new to the Cragged team, I am no stranger to camp life! Both that of remote, wilderness locations, and sunny-beach-day summer camps as a counselor. I never truly uncovered my love for the outdoors, as I have been long rooted in it, but what came with age is my undying passion for teaching and working with youth in outdoor settings. As an enrichment program coordinator for a mentoring organization where I planned and implemented trips with youth, I have had the unique opportunity to see first hand the growth anybody can undergo in the outdoors and it inspires me daily to keep doing what I love and loving what I do!
I am Wilderness First Responder certified and bring training in the areas of expedition planning/wilderness preparedness, canoeing, rock climbing, kayaking, and Leave No Trace awareness. I am a musician, a goofball, an artist, craftsman, and a facilitator for positivity and confidence building. I love my dog, rock climbing, woodworking, and of course backpacking!
I am excited to build my presence in the Cragged community and work with my team to make this summer awesome! CMF 2017 will be great.
