With OARS Since
I'm happiest backpacking and just getting outside any chance I get. Skiing, paddleboarding with my pups, and being on the river are a few of my favorites. Also, getting my baby girl out there exploring with me is the best!
The Best Part of My Job
Whether a first-timer or seasoned rafter, the best part of my job is being able to connect folks to the outdoors and help get them ready to do something that will turn into one of the biggest highlights of their life.
How I found OARS
I heard about OARS from working at the local gear shop here in town and joined some friends at the 50th-anniversary celebration, where I really learned about everything that OARS stands for. Fast forward a few years, and I was finishing up a season with the forest service. I happened to come across a job opening and didn't hesitate applying!
My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors
North Fork Moke. Awesome hike and the swimming holes are an added bonus!
My Lucky Charm
I wear a ring I got in Greece when I was 12, and it's been on every trip since.
I Can’t Live Without
Chapstick, for sure.
My Fun Fact
I'm a dancer! Went to school for dance and teach on the side!
