Mariah was exposed to wilderness travel at the young age of six weeks when she took her first trip into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Since then she has embraced many adventures including bike touring with her family, dogsledding on Hudson Bay and most recently circumnavigating Lake Superior by sea kayak. Mariah graduated from Northland College with a degree in Art and Environmental Science. She currently works at the Voyageur Outward Bound School in Ely, Minnesota, where she leads wilderness expeditions by canoe, kayak, dogsled and skis. Mariah is a wilderness EMT and teaches wilderness medicine because she believes that everyone should have basic medical training so they can be of service to others. When she isn't working Mariah enjoys running, mountain biking, hanging out with her dog Bandit and sleeping in a heated building.
