Izzy

Regional Director

Originally from Northern California, Izzy has spent the last several years working outdoor education and trip leading all over the world. Izzy keeps coming back to Bold Earth because she “adores the communities that Bold Earth creates, both with staff as well as students.” She has been an outdoor guide in Hawaii, Virginia, the PNW, South Korea, China, South Africa, Australia, Chile and Hong Kong. All that travel considered, her favorite place in the world is still Northern California, where she calls home. Some of Izzy’s proudest moments include taking her 80-year-old grandmother on one of New Zealand’s Great Walks and winning a corn dog eating contest. In her free time, she enjoys reading, cycling, eating, yoga, and crocheting hats that look like vegetables. Izzy has been trained as a lifeguard and Wilderness First Responder and joins Bold Earth for her eighth summer.
