I began working as an Instructor with the REI Outdoor School in Portland, OR in 2012. Since then I have taught a range of classes including navigation, backpacking, wilderness skills, Stand Up Paddleboarding, gourmet backcountry cooking, and more. I love helping people develop the skills and confidence to try something new or explore outside of their comfort zones. When I’m not teaching I’m probably hiking or paddling my SUP and daydreaming about my next travel adventure.
