Youth Programs Manager
Katie joined RMBL in 2018 as a Youth Programs Instructor and Visitor Center Staff and now serves as the Youth Programs Manager. Katie earned her B.S. in Outdoor Education and Geography from Appalachian State University after completing a semester at National Outdoor Leadership School in Lander, WY. She then spent 15 years enjoying the diversity of the southern Appalachians while working as a park ranger in the South Carolina State Park Service and an instructor and camp director for a science education nonprofit. She found her next home here in the Gunnison Valley while working as an Education Ranger at Curecanti National Recreation Area and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. When not connecting youth to nature and science, you might find Katie soaking up wildflower season, floating down rivers, going on full moon ski adventures, and taking weekend camping trips in search of hot springs with her partner, Kyle, and two dogs, Copper and Pretzel.
