My experience as a professional in the outdoor industry is unique and varied. I have worked as a facilitator, instructor, educator, and guide for over a decade. My continuing education as an outdoor professional has taken me from academia to the AMGA Alpine and Rock tracks. Though the value of my graduate studies can never be overstated, the outdoor classroom is without a doubt, life-changing.
