Trip Leader: Bold Alps 1 and Alps Adventure 2

A New Jersey native, Gillian moved to Colorado after earning her dual bachelor’s degree in psychology and philosophy from Hobart & William Smith Colleges. She received her master’s in social work from the University of Denver while exploring her backyard of the Rocky Mountains. Her experiences leading 70+ day gap semesters across Southeast Asia and the South Pacific with ARCC, serving as head of trips at Camp Pinnacle, and working as a registered behavior technician have further fueled Gillian’s dual passions for teaching and the great outdoors.

In her downtime, Gillian loves to bike, hike, ski, and paint. She believes traveling is one of the best ways to explore other cultures, gain new perspectives, get out of your comfort zone, and learn about yourself. Gillian is certified as a Wilderness First Responder. Gillian is extremely excited to join Bold Earth for her first summer and to create lasting memories with students this summer!
