Mountain Top Experiences
Quite simply, I love to be outdoors. This is where I find those Mountain Top Experiences- where everything makes a little more sense. I learned this at an early age when I was able to jump on my bike and head for the hills. Times have changed and most kids don't have those unrestricted opportunities to explore the natural world. I want to give your child a guided and supervised experience outdoors where they can develop wonder and appreciation that will lead to stewardship.
As a veteran elementary school teacher I have led students on numerous field trips. Many of these excursions have been Discovery Nature Walks along the American River. There is something magical that happens when a child experiences the natural world. My Waldorf training has taught me to channel these experiences into lessons that are targeted to your child's developmental stages. With my experience and Wilderness First Aid Certification, I am also confident to address any issues that may arise.
Mountain biking is my passion and it is my preferred way to get up, and especially down the mountain. I have experience with the Downieville Classic, California Enduro Series, Trans BC 6 Day Enduro, and Enduro World Series. I have worked with some of the best event planners in the industry and assisted with everything from logistics to backcountry medical emergencies.
My most recent goal was to complete a comprehensive instructor training program https://icp.bike/ to improve my skills and to help others. I have found that a little bit of coaching can go a long way towards keeping everyone safe and having a lot more fun.
Whether we are riding bikes or hiking, I will give your child a guided and supervised opportunity to experience and appreciate the natural world.
The first step is to get outdoors!
