About me

In addition to rafting, I also enjoy skiing, cooking, and backpacking. I also completed a master's program for Outdoor Adventure and Expedition Leadership.

The Best Part of My Job

I've got regular access to areas some people might never be able to see.

How I found OARS

I started with small daily trips in Wyoming and met multi-day guides in college who encouraged me to apply for jobs at companies like OARS.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

I really enjoy the Jones Hole hike because I get to show guests the rock art and talk with people about the civilizations that lived in the area before we worked there.

My Favorite Trip Memory

I once found myself carrying a hot fire pan across camp while wearing a bright pink tank top my coworkers picked out of a costume bag for me.

I Can’t Live Without

Lip balm is a life saver in desert environments.
