Joey is our newest guide at HCVA, he comes with fresh eyes and the most recent knowledge from his courses at Colorado Mountain College.
I am a United States Marine Corps Veteran who moved to Colorado to pursue a career in the outdoor industry. I am pursuing a degree in Outdoor Recreational Leadership at CMC in Leadville. I have trained as a mountaineer and worked as a raft guide and when I am not volunteering or doing school work, I can be found leading teens on backcountry trips in summit county. I have a Wilderness First Responder, AIARE 1, LNT, and mental first aid certification. When I'm not taking courses to improve my knowledge, I spend most of my time exploring and planning trips.
