Beatriz Chong, B.S.

Position: Wilderness Field Instructor

Beatriz is a Florida native who spent all of her time prior to working at Northwoods Wilderness Therapy in the warmer state. Throughout her life, Beatriz has worked with people in a variety of different settings including outdoors as a camp counselor, lifeguard, and swim instructor. She loves learning about what makes each of us different and how our experiences shape the way we behave and interact. Beatriz’ jobs in the past encouraged her to continue her education and pursue a career working with children. Beatriz graduated from Florida State with a B.S. in Family and Child Science and Psychology and gained experience in research and crisis counseling. Beatriz is far from home but excited to be in the Wisconsin and hopes to merge her love of the outdoors and psychology to benefit the students here at Northwoods Wilderness Therapy! In her free time, Beatriz enjoys adventuring through swimming, hiking, kayaking, rollerblading, and exploring sink holes.
