Glad has been an instructor for the Wilderness Medicine Institute for many years. Her background in international work, emergency medicine, infectious disease and family practice gives her a unique ‘bag of tricks’ to share with her students. After many years of guiding in both the mountain and whitewater setting she has turned her attention to international work, teaching and providing care in remote settings such as Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Chilean Patagonia, Uganda and Southern Sudan. She is currently working on a post-masters in Psych-Mental health, with an emphasis on Trauma Integration. A fledgling fiddle player, she is always looking for someone to jam with. She lives outside of Boulder and works as a Family Nurse Practitioner for Boulder Community Hospital.
