I take my job as emergency response very seriously. Though most days I transport food, water and shelters to hiking destinations. In the event of an emergency situation I will respond and help coordinate evacuation and aid necessary. Having worked as a field staff with the groups for a year and a half prior to my role as ERV (Emergency Response Vehicle), I will often visit the groups to support staff and students.
During my time at Outback I have watched and helped facilitate growth, understanding and acceptance within the youth I interact with. Being able to participate in the repair of family relationships and an individual's personal love and acceptance has been a beautiful and challenging part of why I am here. I don't believe any of the teens who come here are bad, merely people who need help to find their way to healing, forgiveness and peace.
I love to bake, especially pies, and cook a variety of foods. When at home, I spend my time fishing, hiking, camping or cuddling with my cats and a good book Since working at Outback I have taken an interest in primitive skills, backpacking and wilderness first aid. I aim to learn how to rock climb, expand my primitive knowledge and I would like to eventually complete a long distance hike. As I love to fish and camp I also dream of learning to run rivers and go on extensive fishing/camping trips.
