Ryan Walton

Position: Business Development Director
Ryan joins the team at New Vision Wilderness in the role of Regional Outreach Director. His career has spanned across a range of medical services, from acute care adolescent psych to a therapeutic boarding school, to most recently at a wilderness therapy program. His true passion is working with teens as they navigate a challenging time in their life, ultimately helping to heal future generations. A transplant from Maryland, Ryan’s calling to the wilderness has landed him with New Vision, and he is excited about merging his passion and his background. “It is with great excitement that I announce I have joined the incredible team at New Vision Wilderness, in the role of Outreach Director. I am excited to work with and learn from, Kathleen Goughler and Patrick McAvoy, who bring a wealth of industry experience and best practices.” When not in the office, Ryan is mountain biking, skiing, coaching lacrosse, or spending time with his son.

Daryn started her work with therapeutic programs in 2006 after six years in the United States Navy and a year of independent humanitarian work in Zimbabwe. Since then, Daryn co-founded and co-ran a learning differences day school, was the team leader in a wilderness program, was the program director for a young adult transition program, and, most recently, the Admissions Director at a Discovery Ranch for Girls.

Daryn’s knowledge of wilderness therapy and experience in other therapeutic environments allows her to connect quickly with parents and provide a sense of calmness to the process.

She is committed to creating an environment for our clients and families where people of all backgrounds and identities feel respected, honored, and safe. Daryn is currently working on her master’s degree in business at Southern Utah University. She spends her free time with her husband, two young sons, and their two dogs rock climbing, skiing, whitewater kayaking, canoeing, cycling, reading, and traveling.

“We are thrilled to have Daryn join our team at New Vision Wilderness in Oregon. She brings a wealth of experience, energy, and passion that will help connect families to our program.” – Andrew Scott, Executive Director

Mark Morse

Position: Admissions Coordinator

Mark is the Admissions Coordinator at Deschutes Wilderness Therapy (DWT) since March of 2021. He started in admissions after being a field instructor for our program. He came out of the woods and went into admissions to pursue a career in the industry he loves. Before coming to DWT, he was a field instructor at the wilderness therapy program Pacific Quest, on the Big Island of Hawaii, which has a horticulture therapy model. He ended up at Pacific Quest right after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a BA in Philosophy.

The outdoors has always been an integral part of Mark’s life. His hobbies include backpacking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, climbing, and on any given day you can find him running copious miles through Bend. His connection to the outdoors and his desire to help others create healthy change has brought him home to working in wilderness therapy.
