What are you passionate about?
Teaching wilderness skills, and empowering people to get outside and explore!
What is your favorite place to have visited?
Tanzania. When I was 17 I had the opportunity to go on a teen summer program, and I fell in love. With a diverse landscape, beautiful culture, and ample opportunity for adventure, I can’t wait to go back and explore more.
What is your favorite ARCC Program?
Thailand. There is so much packed into one trip. I can lead the Thailand trip over and over, and always find new wonderful things about it. Feeding elephants is a highlight!
