My name is Ryan Welborn, I am a student at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado studying Wilderness Therapy. I have been backpacking and exploring since 2014 after I graduated college and hiked the Appalachian Trail. I moved to California in 2015 to teach Outdoor Education in the Santa Cruz Redwoods and continued hiking and exploring, finishing the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016. I have landed in Burlington, VT and started finding ways to integrate the lessons I’ve learned over the years in my own life and in support of others.
