Paige is the Energizer Bunny in guide form, giving 110% with a smile to her work whether she’s out on the ice, in the backcountry, or in the office. She grew up in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia, but is drawn to epic landscapes with big mountains. She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a degree in Environmental Studies and devoted most of her time to its Outdoor Adventure Program. Through the program, she guided backpacking, sea kayaking, paddleboarding and mountain biking trips (to name a few!) and solidified her dream career path of guiding people in the landscapes she loves.
Beyond guiding, Paige’s love of travel has taken her to South America and the Middle East and she fell in love with getting to know other cultures. She lived in Patagonia in Southern Chile for two years and spent most of her free time exploring all the national parks and reserves and remote landscapes Patagonia is known for. She now splits her time here in McCarthy in the summers and Salt Lake City, UT in the winters. She is a bicycle enthusiast, environmental scientist, and all-around delightful person who is dedicated to making sure that every person who comes through our doors has the best possible experience out in the Wrangells!
