I received my first paycheck working in recreation in 1994 and have been doing so since then. Over the past 18 years I have spent most of my time snowboarding, skiing, kayaking, and rafting. I love to teach in the outdoors and usually end up doing so. I have many of titles and certifications in snowboarding through AASI, but now I spend most of my snowboarding efforts on The Grind here at EWU and teaching my children to love the slopes. I am also an ACA certified Whitewater Kayak Instructor and Rescue 3 Water Rescue Instructor, and have a few other outdoor certifications. My educational focus has been in Recreation, Leadership, and Education, and I have degrees in Outdoor Recreation and Organizational Leadership, and am currently working on a Ph.D.
