Amy

Growing up in rural Wyoming and the Wind River Mountains, Amy has always felt a strong connection to the wild. After graduating Westminster College with a degree in the Psychology of Communication and minor in Outdoor Education and Leadership, Amy's career combines her passion for outdoor adventure with media production. She's a writer, film maker, and multi-sport athlete creating media content with the goal of inspiring people to take action to positively improve their personal lives and the world around them. She has developed a women's backcountry retreat program for the world-wide women's collective And She's Dope Too which brings women of all experience levels together to learn outdoor skills and experience the beauty of nature. She's also a backpacking guide for Sawtooth Mountain Guides in Idaho. As a life long skier, Amy has competed in the Freeskiing World Tour and is a coach for the Sun Valley big mountain high school team, but her greatest love is backcountry skiing and exploring deep in the mountains.
