OUR TEAM

PNW Outdoor Women is a labor of love. Purely volunteer-based, our team consists of many fine humans who graciously share their time and energy to make things work. United by a shared passion for the outdoors and creating space so more women can get outside, this is our team:

Christina moved from an oceanside Massachusetts city to Seattle 4 years ago to get her masters degree. Enchanted by the mountains, alpine lakes, volcanoes, and old growth, she and her husband decided to make the PNW their home, hiking and roadtripping every chance they get, rain or shine. Being outdoors in any capacity is essential to her physical and emotional health, and she is passionate about bringing awareness to/ breaking down the stigmas that still surround mental illness. Christina now works on the advocacy team of her dream organization, the Washington Trails Association, dedicating her energy to preserving our public lands and making trails more accessible to all.

Homegrown in the beautiful northwest, Becka loves to get out rock climbing, hiking and backpacking. Her favorite areas to explore are the Wallowas and the Columbia River Gorge, at least for now! As she states, don't let fear hold you back from exploring and learning, you will be so happy once you step out of your comfort zone!

 Kris's life is a juxtaposition of a small town upbringing in northern Idaho to enjoying city life in Chicago, Kansas City and Seattle. From mountains to boardrooms, raising a family to empty nester her life is about maximizing moments and achieving peak experiences. She works hard, plays hard and loves making a difference in others lives. Curiosity and learning drives her; faith and Mother Nature fuels her. Sharing her zest for life, love of the outdoors and encouraging fellow PNWOW to attain their peak experiences is an honor.

Laura loves spending time outdoors, hiking among wildflowers, backpacking in Central Oregon, exploring tide pools along the Oregon coast, and alpine mountaineering. The amount of beauty available to those living in the PNW is astounding, and no matter how much she sees, she feel that she has just scratched the surface of what's offered. Laura looks forward to sharing outdoor experiences with fellow PNWOW members.
