Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician

Amanda Dickson

Formerly a commercial fisher-lady in Alaska, a fisheries technician in Yellowstone, and ski patroller in Colorado, Amanda began teaching mountaineering courses for NOLS in 2008. She loves teaching pulley systems, environmental ethics and non-freezing cold injuries in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Her favorite part of being an outdoor educator is watching her students develop judgment and competence with patient assessment and technical climbing skills. While she hopes to one day have a house with an oven, Amanda is the proud owner of a two burner stove and enjoys baking scones and cooking wildly elaborate meals.
