Born and raised in San Diego, Angelique considers the ocean home. She fell in love with the outdoors at a young age, going on family trips to National Parks and visiting family in Mexico.
Angelique received her BA in Communication Studies from San Francisco State University while working at the local Patagonia store. During this time, she dove deep in the conversation for sustainability and conservation. After graduating, she backpacked in South America before returning to San Diego. Here she combined her passions for the outdoors and being of service to her community - working with local non-profits that harnessed the power of the outdoors and education to introduce marginalized communities to different pathways in life.
Currently, Angelique works at the NOLS Wold Headquarters as a Marketing Representative.
