I followed my heart in the summer of 2016 and made a big cross country move from Nashville, TN to Bellingham, WA. Urged on by friends who said the Pacific Northwest was a healing place, I packed up my small car with just the essentials and took a huge leap of faith. I knew I wanted to work for myself, and after much soul searching and asking myself, "What are you passionate about?", the one thing that kept ringing in my ears was kayaking. All I had to do was look on the map of Bellingham, and I could see it was a paddler's paradise. There was much to learn, so I spent every moment I could of my first summer in Bellingham on the water. I can't wait to get out and show you all the beautiful places I've discovered!
Hello! My name is Nevin (they/them), and I can usually be found making art, exploring outside, or studying at a cute coffee shop. I'm currently working towards a double major at WWU, combining Recreation Leadership with a Fairhaven concentration in rites of passage and art therapy. My degree is a word salad of healing, creating, and making sure everyone has access to the amazing wild spaces around us.
Hi! My name is Gillian. I’m originally from Juneau, Alaska and I’ve loved living in Bellingham while I study Recreation Management and Leadership at WWU. For me, there’s nothing better than being on the water or out exploring trails. I’m passionate about sharing the benefits of getting outside with others while protecting and appreciating our environment.
