Where were you born and/or raised?
I was raised in the deciduous forests of New England and learn how to ski on the ice slopes of Vermont.
Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities?
My favorite aspects of guiding and instructing is showing people the love for the sport and gratitude of helping someone succeed at something they thought they could not do.
How did you come to work with the ASC? How long have you been here?
In 2008 I graduated from Prescott College with a degree in Wilderness Leadership. Throughout my academic and field based studies, I found a passion for guiding. In 2010 I made my home in Crested Butte pursuing the mountain life and guiding through a career with the Adaptive Sports Center; guiding people with different abilities in rock/ice climbing, skiing and mountain travel.
