Misti was raised in Gooding, Idaho, and loved growing up in a small community. She moved to Boise after graduation to attend college. Misti worked for 7 years running a luxury theater with a full-service restaurant and managed over 100 employees. She genuinely loves working with people and creating an experience for others. Shortly after having their second child Misti had the opportunity to accept a job near San Francisco. Misti and her family packed up and spent a couple years experiencing city living and spent their time at the beach. Misti and her family missed the feeling of a small community and moved back to Gooding in February of 2020.
Misti married her high school sweetheart and have been together for 13 years. They have a 5-year-old and a 3 year old. Misti and her family spend their summers boating on the SnakeRiver, hiking, kayaking, camping, and at the ball field. Their winters are spent in the mountains skiing and snowboarding. Everything they do includes family.
Misti chose blueFire because she loves what the program provides to their clients such as the adventures, curriculum, staff, and the overall experience that is given. Misti also loves to witness the growth and change in our blueFire clients and said it is an extremely rewarding position to be able to witness a client’s journey through blueFire.
One of Misti’s favorite quotes is “The biggest communication problem is, we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.” -Umesh Dhande
