Originally from Maine, Caitie or “CQ”, is generally excited. She’s on a lifelong quest to be a morning person and enjoys early mornings in the snow, and especially early mornings in the snow on skis. She has worked as a botanist, a kindergarten teacher, and a NOLS field instructor and program supervisor for the winter program in Teton Valley. She is grateful this work has taken her to incredible foreign landscapes for work and skiing and is thrilled to be working for AAI this season.
When she is not working avalanche courses, she is a baker (again, lifelong quest) in Teton Valley. Other things she is enthusiastic about when not skiing: developing recipes, playing hockey, kicking butt in scrabble, self-made triathlons, and hanging out with other people’s dogs.
