Born and raised in Spokane WA, Jeannie spent time living in Boise and near Portland but always seem to be drawn back to Spokane and all it has to offer for easy access to such a range of outdoor activities. It was through cross country ski coaching that she discovered her desire to not just enjoy the outdoors herself, but to share these experiences and passion for the outdoors with others in her community. When not on the river, she can be found on her bike or running, and cross country skiing in the winter. Jeannie is always excited to be challenged and try something new. She graduated from Eastern Washington University with a degree in biology.
