Camp Set- Up/LNT/Backcountry Procedures Instruction
At TrekSierra, enjoy your time in the outdoors and leave camp set up to your guide! For those wanting to learn, I can provide instruction on how to properly set up camp and fortify your shelter. This can also include Leave No Trace and other Backcountry Procedures for those that may be training for a longer endeavor, looking to set themselves up for success on their next trip or just curious and eager to learn!
AMGA Trained Professional Local Guide
I am a certified Wilderness First Responder, Leave No Trace Trainer, AIARE Certified, AMGA Apprentice Alpine Guide and Single Pitch Instructor. I have extensive backpacking experience here in the US as well as internationally, and over 15 years experience in hospitality.
Add a Theme!
TrekSierra offers themed hikes to make your trip even more memorable! This is a unique service designed to enhance your trek but never to “crowd” your trek. It is understood that backpacking can be a tiring experience. These customizable theme options are designed to be a relaxing “extra” on your trip- never to overwhelm your group!
A Friendly, Supportive and Socially Comfortable Trekking Experience
I believe in a personalized backpacking experience where everyone feels included, no matter what ability level! The mountains can be a place to grow and learn, and everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy them!
A Bit About Me!
I became a Guide because I believe in the power of mentorship and making a difference to others' experience in the outdoors (as so many have done for me!). I like to do this by creating the most supportive and comfortable trip possible, while also helping break through physical and mental barriers.
I moved to California from the east coast in 2016, when I was predominantly rock climbing year-round. After experiencing the extraordinary mountains of the Sierra Nevada Range, I decided to make Mammoth Lakes my home. I have since lived in and explored many other mountains, trails and countries- including Australia, China, Thailand, Switzerland, France, Italy and Mexico.
I guide many trails here in the High Sierra, including more technical mountains such as the Mountaineers Route of Mt. Whitney. In my spare time you can find me rock climbing, trail running, peak bagging and snowboarding- the High Sierra has it all!
