eoerjfgre17@tznvy.pbz Hailing from Connecticut, Becca has made her way West to California over the past 10 years. After graduating from Wheaton College in Massachusetts, she adventured down to the U.S. Virgin Islands where she spent two years working and living both at a campground and cooking on a term-charter yacht. After a short stint exploring the “desk-life” of New York City, she answered the call and moved to Durango, Colorado where she spent the next 3 years as a Wilderness Therapy Field Guide. Durning this time, she lead therapeutic backpacking trips in the backcountry of Utah and Colorado for teens and young adults. This lead her to Costa Rica, where she worked in experiential education with adolescent boys at a therapeutic boarding school, focusing on graduating high school and adventuring in the backcountry. She’s now living in Santa Barbara, attending Pacifica Graduate Institute and working towards becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. WYP stole her heart when she volunteered during her first months in Santa Barbara. She believes in the individual and collective benefits of play, adventure, imagination, and connection with the natural world.
