I grew up in Hopkins, a suburb of Minneapolis, with four sisters and a set of parents driven to show us the United States from our 1987 conversion van. My love for the outdoors grew from that van, and from time spent in the north woods of Minnesota and Wisconsin. I graduated college from the University of Montana in Missoula where access to the mountains and outdoors expanded. My love for people and adventure has since taken me all over the world – from farms to soccer fields, shantytowns to glaciers – I have lived and worked in a multitude of cities and places. I so enjoy seeing people come alive and experience life; doing so in the outdoors is exhilarating and is the reason for which I am so excited to be working for Austin Adventures!
Since falling madly in love with skiing powder, these days you are most likely to find me in the mountains of Montana, where I currently live in Big Sky, Montana.
