Greetings! I have been leading adventure trips since I was a sophomore in college. The National Outdoor Leadership School set me on a fast track towards recreation as a career. I did a month-long course kayaking down Desolation Canyon and climbing in Wyoming. I worked for my university's recreation program, and finished my degree in Outdoor Recreation by completing an intense internship in Colorado Springs, Colorado. There, I was a lead on ice climbing, skiing, snowboarding, and rock climbing adventures for the military and their families of the Fort Carson Army Base. Spreading my wings, I left the small town of Statesboro, Georgia for the big city of Atlanta and the even bigger organization of REI. When not working, I kayak as much as I can, backpack as much as possible, and climb every chance I get.
