Wilderness First Responder

Allison Maffei

Allison currently resides in San Francisco where she laments the absence of a river canyon by enjoying the coastal waters as much as possible. When not teaching for NOLS Wilderness Medicine Allison can almost always be found working at her real job managing an adaptive Sea Kayak Program for Environmental Traveling Companions or learning to sail her latest toy around the SF Bay! Other San Francisco residents don't believe she actually lives there as on the weekends she is almost always finding wilder, sunnier places to spend her time. Allison thinks knowing Wilderness Medicine is important like bringing rain gear on a cloudy day, the more prepared you are the less likely you are to need it!
