Field Staff

Abbie was born in Texas and fell in love with the outdoors at a very young age. Her passion for the outdoors has led her to explore every rock, river, nook, and cranny that this beautiful world has to offer. Her own experiences with nature as a facilitator of healing led her to pursue wilderness therapy as a career, wanting to share that experience with other young people. Abbie earned her bachelor’s degree in marketing at Texas Tech University in Lubbock Texas, and briefly pursued a career in communications and marketing. She quickly realized that she wanted more connection and adventure than was being met by a 40 hour/week desk job, so she found wilderness therapy and has not looked back. Abbie is passionate about introducing others to the wonders of nature and following them through their own personal journeys and all of the highs and lows that come with it, including the increased self-awareness, self-confidence, and a-ha moments. In her free time, Abbie loves to kayak, rock climb, ride her bike or just watch movies with her puppy. Her favorite quote is from J.R.R Tolkein: “Where there’s life, there’s hope.”
