AIARE 1 Instructor since 2013 for the Colorado Mountain Club. I've been involved in adult education since my late 20's, starting as a NAUI Assistant Dive Instructor for Georgia State University. Love teaching and showing folks the how-to's and teaching risk management as they engage with the natural world. I've been a volunteer for the Colorado Mountain Club since 2007, instructing in various mountaineering disciplines, as well as leading CMC trips throughout the 4-season in and outside of Colorado. I love teaching. I love the snow. AIARE fulfills both passions. I believe in the slogan, AIARE saves lives\".
