Born and raised in New England, Trisha has been exploring the woods, mountains, and sea coast for as long as she can remember. She has ventured to 49 out of 50 states and aspires to make it to Alaska in the near future. When she isn't teaching for NOLS, she works as an IMC float nurse at Maine Medical Center and as a detox nurse at a local recovery center. Trisha has a background in outdoor education and recreation as a wilderness guide, trip leader, climbing gym manager, and in youth programming. She calls Maine home where she lives with her husband and a few too many house plants.
