Simply put, Ann Marie loves to be outside. Whether that's on horseback, a boat or her own two feet, you can often find Ann Marie exploring the vast wilderness areas of Northwest Montana. Born and raised in central California, Ann Marie dabbled in track & field, horseback riding and a little rugby. Upon graduating from University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in sociology she explored the Pacific Northwest uncovering a passion for hiking, backpacking and kayaking. 

In 2016, Montana came calling. Ann Marie served as a Field Crew Leader and returned as a Senior Crew Leader out of the Northern Rockies MCC office. Her passion connecting participants to the outdoors is contagious. In 2018, Ann Marie sharpened her technical skills working for the Kootenai National Forest Service. Ultimately to return to MCC Youth programs in 2019. Ann Marie is thrilled to be returning to the Youth Program for a second season to facilitate the growth and empowerment of young people in Montana through hard work and a little fun in the woods.
