Kate’s love for the outdoors began at an early age playing in the creek with her brother and sister behind her house in upstate New York. At age 10 she moved to Massachusetts, where her passion for the outdoors continued to grow. Being a collegiate student-athlete, Kate would enjoy hiking with her friends to unwind. After graduating college with a degree in Psychology, Kate continued her education by earning her Masters degree in Special Education.
In 2007, Kate moved to Colorado to explore educational opportunities outside of the classroom. As a result, Kate spent the winter teaching snowboarding and received training to become a Leave No Trace Master Educator in the spring of 2008. She also has been trained in Wilderness First Aid. Some of Kate’s other interests include hiking, biking, playing bocce, disc golf, and cloud gazing.
Before she could walk, Tracy’s connection to the out of doors began in her fathers backpack while he was hiking and skiing. Growing up on six acres of land in Westwood, MA, Tracy and her five brothers and sisters spent countless hours building forts and creating their own adventures. The Howard clan spent summers on Cape Cod boating and fishing and winters up in Vermont skiing and snowboarding.
