How does mountaineering, and other types of adventuring, help you manage stress, achieve work-life balance, and contribute to your overall health and well-being?

“During my free time I go to the gym four to five times a week. Usually it will be a combination of Olympic lifts, cross fit, strength training, and HIIT. This energizes me before I start my shifts. I realize that the sensation of burn out starts creeping in if I miss my workout sessions for the week. Likewise, during my vacations I seek out countries that provide amazing outdoor activities. To me the more challenging the task the more rewarding it is in the end. This is the reason why I have traveled to Nepal for Everest Base Camp, Tanzania to summit Kilimanjaro, and Mt. Rainier for the Denali training. I absolutely love my time in the ED and the flexibility it provides so I can move from one adventure to the next!”
