- What was the last big trip you took? Last spring we made our way into Baja, CA. We met up with friends in Ensenada and spent the next week looking for surf and tacos! After Baja, my partner and I drove to her dad’s house in Oregon to prepare for our wedding! On the drive up, we spent time in Joshua Tree National Park, the Grand Canyon, and in some of Arizona’s best hot springs.
- What excites you the most about working for BE this summer? I am most looking forward to trying something new and exploring a potential career path in outdoor education, and I know this experience will bring new challenges and new rewards! I hope to see some new places and do something I’ve never done, and getting to share my love for traveling and the outdoors with young people.
