Nate has been working in wilderness, therapy, or the combination of the two for the last 10 years. Growing up in Minnesota, Nate spent part of every summer paddling on the lakes and road-tripping across the country with his family. That early love for the wild and for adventure has turned into a career dedicated to giving others the tools to succeed.
With over 800 field days, the majority working for various wilderness therapy programs, Nate has a wealth of experience to draw upon when talking with potential Field Mentors or interacting with clients. He earned his Masters in Outdoor Education Administration in 2014, which provided Nate further training in risk management and staff hiring & training.
When not working directly with staff and clients, Nate is likely out for a long trail run, trying to win at trivia, or watching a movie with superheroes involved.
