As a professional guide, I spent time mastering the technical skills in backpacking and white water rafting, as well as the soft skills necessary to motivate and positively influence all individuals in the backcountry. Raft guiding on the Payette River promoted my physical and mental growth and ability to cater each trip specifically to the satisfaction of the customer. While guiding backpacking trips I taught many backcountry skills, evaluating each participant as they demonstrated the skills they had learned.
