Growing up, my dad instilled in us kids an appreciation for the wilderness, teaching us “leave no trace” before that was a popular term. Vacation meant going backpacking or camping. The problem was that every trip had an end; we had to go back to regular life.
I now have the privilege of working with Mountain Leadership Institute, where my passion and employment can be combined. I get to organize trips to the North India Himalaya and work with a team to empower local guides.
