A deep passion for the outdoors developed when I was a kid growing up in Michigan. We lived on the St. Clair River, which separated us from a sleepy little town in Canada. Although it was a major Great Lakes shipping channel – flowing between Lake Huron and Lake St. Clair – I practically lived in the river during summers, and I ice skated on a tributary in the winters.
During the years I raised my family and worked as an RN, I continued to explore the outdoors in many forms: hiking, paddling, backpacking, riding, climbing and mountaineering. Eventually moving into nursing management and leading multi-day excursions, I developed and refined leadership skills.
Following a terrifying accident in the Eastern Sierra in 2013, I decided to focus my energy on training and preparing my community to cope with first aid emergencies both at home and in remote areas.
Most weekends - and often during the week - you'll find Chris on local Bay Area trails. She has a long-standing love of adventure in the outdoors.
Chris has extensive experience in human resources and leadership, and she's also been trained as an EMT. Her love and concern for people bring a warm and comfortable mood to trainings that can be otherwise face-paced and intense.
