Amy discovered her passion for the outdoors while leading backpacking trips at a summer camp in New Hampshire during college. After college she lived and worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guyana, South America, and enjoyed exploring the mountains, rivers, and rainforests of the area. When she returned to the states, she took her first NOLS Wilderness Medicine course and has been a WFR since 2007. Amy has worked in the field of Adventure Education in a variety of capacities. She has worked as a NOLS Expeditions instructor and has run Adventure Education Programs at schools and universities in California and Colorado, working both in the field leading experiences for students and as an administrator. Amy has worked for NOLS Wilderness Medicine since 2011 and now teaches a variety of course types including WFA’s, WFR-R’s, and WFR’s. Amy loves teaching for NOLS Wilderness Medicine because of the incredible community of educators she works with and the energy and passion of the students she teaches.
