As an adventurer in life I am always looking for great challenges. As a river guide I loved the challenge of sharing beautiful places like the Grand Canyon with people. As a mom I embrace the challenge of teaching my children all the amazing things I've seen and love in this world . As a musician I love the challenge of learning a new piece of music and the amazing feeling of playing a piece beautifully. As a professional I enjoy the challenge of helping people in the outdoor industry to gain knowledge and experience of what the wilderness can offer to us all by just getting out there and enjoying it. I fully believe in the mantra, "work hard, play hard."
