Offseason Gig

I work for OARS year-round.

About me

Spending time with my long-time friends brings me joy and feeds my soul.

The Best Part of My Job

Using everything I've learned over the years to help our guests determine the best trip for them in that particular moment, and knowing that regardless of where that is, they're going to a very special place and will have a stellar time.

How I found OARS

Serendipitously. Circumstances conspired and put me in the right place at the right time.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

I love the hike from Woodchuck Basin to Wheeler Ridge in the Mokelumne National Forest.

My Favorite Trip Memory

Rowing a boat by myself from Tapeats to Poncho’s - until something even more magical happens.

Favorite River Tradition

I traditionally lose an earring on every river trip, to my dismay.

I Can’t Live Without

On trips, I can't live without a bandana, and in cooler weather, my fleece vest.
