Allison, aka Ally, is a San Jose native with a fierce passion for botany and outdoor adventures. A blues-harmonica player, Ally’s passion for plant-life is constantly being expressed via poetry and philosophical epiphanies. She studies print journalism and digital media since 2011 and continues to participate in outdoor extravaganzas. During the week, she is found balancing on one inch webbing between two trees or taking immense, obligatory photos of everything. She has been an outdoor guide since 2011 with another outdoor organization.
Her curiosity leads her to some of the best, unusual and exciting, typically hazardous adventures, but she still lives to tell the stories. As of January 2014, she is a certified Wilderness First Responder. She also became a rock climbing instructor through the Professional Climbers Instructors Association in 2012.
Her outdoor color is rumored to be blue due to her array of different shades of blue gear and clothing. She just started teaching herself guitar and wants to gain expertise in surfing.
If you want to slackline, hit up Ally, she has two!
