Emma grew up on the coast of Maine but quickly fell in love with the western mountains. She has spent the last five years guiding and teaching outdoor education in Colorado, Wyoming and Idaho. Emma is a certified AIARE Instructor with a WFR and she has spent the last three winters working with Backcountry Babes. She also instructs rock climbing and backcountry skiing courses for NOLS and the High Mountain Institute.
Emma is passionate about creating inclusive communities in the backcountry. She loves teaching skills that empower people to go explore safely on their own time! When Emma is not playing in the mountains on foot, bike or ski, you can find her sewing outdoor gear and cooking delicious dinners for her friends.
