Regional Director & Trip Leader: California Adventure 1
Originally from Virginia, Maren fell in love with travel at a young age. She attended university at Virginia Tech, where she studied abroad in the Dominican Republic and worked abroad in Paris before graduating with a bachelors degree in hospitality and tourism management. After a few years working on the executive management team at a country club, Maren’s passion for adventure, hiking, backpacking, and exploring outdoors led her to work as a backpacking guide for youth in North Carolina where she currently resides. Maren is passionate about working with others and sharing her love for travel and the outdoors. Maren has been trained as a wilderness first responder and joins Bold Earth for her third season. This summer she is looking forward to helping facilitate outdoor and interpersonal experiences that empower our students.
