Originally from Los Angeles California I have had a lifelong love for the outdoors and throughout college developed my skills as an outdoor leader. I graduated in 2009 from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration with a concentration in Outdoor Recreation. During my time there I spent four years working as a trip leader for the university's outdoor program where I lead numerous trips including backpacking, rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering and canyoneering. Also, I worked as a ropes course facilitator and maintenance tech for the Cal Poly ropes course. In my free time I enjoy road biking, mountain biking, wrenching on bicycles, rock climbing, and slacklining,. Last summer had an awesome experience with the SCA as the Project Leader for the Mt. Rogers Crew and end of season replacement PL for the Pisgah Crew. I'm excited to spend this year as a corps member traveling around the country, hiking trails and collecting data.
