Trip Leader: California Bold 1, California Discovery 2, and California Adventure 3

Originally from Stillwater, Minnesota, Maia has recently found a home in Sitka, Alaska where she works as an educator and aquarium technician at the Sitka Sound Science Center.  Maia is passionate about building community and supporting teens as they explore their strengths. She graduated with her bachelor’s in Mathematics in 2020 from the University of Minnesota, which is also where she fostered her love of the outdoors through backpacking trips and canoe guiding in the Boundary Waters. Maia’s hobbies include making music with friends, colored pencil drawings, crafting little haiku books, and flipping over rocks in the intertidal zone to peer at the world underneath. She is so excited to be back for another amazing summer at Bold Earth! Maia has been trained as a Wilderness First Responder and lifeguard.
