Abilities: This is no ordinary duck. Always the first one to dance in the rain with a positive quackitude, ruffle her feathers when things don’t go according to plan, and wake up at the quack of dawn to appreciate the sunrise. Her quackpack is on, and no place is too far to waddle! 

History: Daniduck is originally from the Denver area. She grew-up appreciating the outdoors for its beauty and natural therapy. She started her rubber duck collection when she was six and now has over 400 rubber ducks. Backpacking has always been her favorite pastime because it involves frolicking in wildflowers and sleeping under the stars, but she also enjoys rock climbing, paddleboarding, hiking, and snowboarding. Mentors on backpacking trips with Women’s Wilderness and Colorado Outward Bound in high school inspired her to pursue the outdoor field. 

Following her love of helping people with their mental health outside, she now goes to school at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado double majoring in Adventure Education & Psychology. During the school year, she is a trip leader for her college’s outdoor program and goes on many adventures in the Southwest. 

Past summers have been spent teaching rock climbing to young kids, studying abroad in Europe, and spending every possible second outside. Daniduck holds Wilderness & Adventure Therapy, Wilderness First Responder and CPR certifications.

Current Base & Operations: While she currently resides in Durango, Colorado attending Fort Lewis College, Daniduck flies all around the Southwest adventuring in Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado. More weekends are spent in the backcountry on a foam pad than in a bed. She never swims too far from her 400+ rubber ducks unless they join her on adventures.
