How long have you worked in the Outdoor Industry? 

I have been a Maine River guide for the past 5 years. Before that I was a race administrative assistant at Sugarloaf Mountain 

What is your origin story working for Three Rivers Whitewater?

When I was working at Sugarloaf I didn’t have plans for a summer job. A couple of the girls I worked with at the mountain also worked at the Shipyard Brew Haus, and they told me about the Shipyard having ownership connections with Three Rivers Whitewater. I didn’t really think much of it and continued to look for work. I ended up getting a job as a wedding planner, but I didn’t want it. I decided to search online for “Fun outdoor jobs in Maine”, Three Rivers Whitewater was the first thing to come up and I knew it was a sign that I should work here. 

What do you love most about being a Maine River Guide?

I love guiding because I get to be a positive influence on people’s outdoor experience and I get to motivate them to enjoy the moment in an exciting outdoor environment. An added benefit is that I get to work outside, get tan, and get fit. 

What is your favorite rapid to guide in Maine?

My favorite rapid to guide would be a tie between Mile Long Rapid on the Dead River and The Falls on the Penobscot River. Because Mile Lone is the longest Class IV rapid in Maine, it’s technical and takes a lot of focus but Surfing The Falls is just so much fun!! 

What is your favorite hike in Maine? 

My favorite hike is Mt. Katahdin 

What do you enjoy doing when not working?

I enjoy Ping Pong, Whitewater Kayak, Mountain Biking, and more Ping Pong 

Favorite experience on the river?

My favorite experience would be surfing on the Seboomook River, but my most memorable experience on the river would be being stuck at Miller Shoot on the Penobscot River for 45 minutes.
