I grew up in Boise, Idaho. I spent my summers hiking around the Frank Church Wilderness and Sawtooth National Forest. My parents instilled a deep reverence for the power of the outdoors in my four brothers and I from a young age. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life to share that with our clients at blueFire.
I attended school at Brigham Young University before getting my Master’s in Business Administration at Boise State University. After teaching school for several years I stumbled onto blueFire while looking for summer work. After catching the “blueFire bug” I couldn’t stay away and joined the company full-time in 2019. I spent 2 years in the field, working to guide our clients through the wilderness, helping them meet their physical and emotional needs. It was fun to combine my experience working with young people with my love for the outdoors. Now I’m lucky to work as the Field Director, helping to recruit and train our staff to be expert wilderness instructors.
