Kiki grew up rafting, skiing and adventuring in Flagstaff, AZ before heading south to Tucson, Arizona for college. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, she returned to her roots to work as a river guide in the Grand Canyon and up in Idaho on the Middle Fork of the Salmon. Kiki has spent many an endless summer chasing rivers and teaching yoga around the world. NOLS Wilderness Medicine provides a unique opportunity to combine a passion for teaching and a lifelong sense of adventure, empowering others to find a similar sense of adventure in their own lives. When not exploring new rivers she can be found playing her ukulele on a small boat in the San Francisco Bay.
