In 2011, Louis graduated college with degrees in Jazz and Geology and returned to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest intending to become a baker. Instead, he found himself working as a ranger in national parks across the west. At Black Canyon National Park in Colorado, Louis discovered a passion for wilderness medicine and rescue. He pursued this interest as an EMT and rescue technician for Grand Canyon National Park. Currently retired from ranger life, Louis works as a trauma technician in the Emergency Department in Boulder, Colorado. Louis has always been inspired by wilderness medicine education and can often be found on the trail chanting medical acronyms and practicing his patient assessment skills. When not in the hospital or deep in a national park, Louis is forever pursuing the perfect loaf of sourdough.
