Victoria McBride

Victoria has a long history of being a woodsy woman, as she was already going on backpacking trips in-utero. Constantly longing for more hours in the day (and more days in the week) to be outside, her outdoor interests have only expanded from there. In addition to now over 20 years of backpacking and hiking under her hip straps, she is also an avid trail runner, skiier, cyclist, and climber, most recently adding mountain biking to her portfolio of outdoor activities she wishes she had infinite hours for.

Victoria has worked as an instructor for REI’s Outdoor School for the past 2 seasons, and prior to that founded and ran the outdoor programs at her graduate school for 2 years, where she has pursued her passion of getting her participants stoked on a life outdoors.
