When the days begin to grow longer and the air a little warmer, Emma gets excited to spend her summers exploring all that the San Juans have to offer. After attending Green Mountain College, Emma found her way West and has been working in outdoor education throughout California sharing her passion for the natural world with students. When not in the San Juans or teaching in California, she can be found moving vertically through the world in climbing meccas such as Joshua Tree, Yosemite and Thailand.
Though she loves her summers spent here in the San Juan Islands, winters allow her freedom and mobility to chase snow and ice in “Lionel”, a converted panel van of her own design. While inherently being an explorer and wanderer, the time she spends in the San Juans is a chance to let some roots grow. She welcomes the warm summer air and time to share her love of the archipelago, cook delicious food, and simply enjoy down days on the porch with friends.
