OARS guide and blog contributor Alyssa Schaffer

Alyssa was raised in the small town of Angels Camp, CA where OARS began and is still headquartered today. She first dreamed of becoming a river guide when she was around twelve years old, and feels fortunate to have fulfilled that aspiration. When she’s not working toward her BA in English, she spends her summers as a raft guide for OARS Oregon on the Rogue and Klamath Rivers.
