Roxanne started her outdoor education career in 1973 teaching white water rafting skills. Since then she has taught kayaking, skiing, cycling, ultra light backpacking and has been a river guide and a mountain guide. She added wilderness medicine instructor for NOLS Wilderness Medicine to her resume in 2010. She currently lives in southern Oregon and when not out on an adventure, she splits her time between working at REI where she has shared her knowledge of outdoor products and adventures since 1991 and teaching for NOLS Wilderness Medicine. In her free time she enjoys trying to make use of a life time of prodeals on long raft trips, bike tours and thru-hiking adventures.
