Profile picture of Alli Hughes, Wilderness Medicine Instructor


Alli shares,

"I strive to bring others closer to their goals, help them face their challenges, and explore new things.  I like to do this in an outdoor setting because I believe there is power in your surroundings.  The outdoors has a way of igniting passions and soothing souls.  Laird Hamilton stated that 'A little adrenaline a day keeps the boredom away,' and I like to practice what my mentor teaches.  By practicing and learning new skills, whether they are a new sport skill or wilderness first aid training, use that adrenaline from practicing to keep you sharp!  Meet me outside and letís go on an adventure!"
