Course Leader

I love backcountry skiing, it makes any day better, I love to teach because it gets people out into the wilderness and mountains and generally makes people happy. I have mainly taught Avy courses for Backcountry Babes based out of Breckenridge, CO. I love working all women's courses and empowering more women to get out into the backcountry safely and confidently. I have also taught for CMS out of Estes, Silverton Avalanche school, and taught the Breckenridge Ski Patrol's in house level 1. I patrolled many years full time at Breck as a paramedic and now just work part time as I have moved to Golden with my 2 young girls and working on my other career as a Integrative nutritionist.
