History: Squirrels! was born and raised in a small town outside of the biiiiig city of Portland, Maine. She spent her childhood getting into mischief with her older sister in the woods near her house. Her love for the outdoors started as early as she can remember, her parents would bring her sister and her along on all of their outdoor excursions. She spent lots of time hiking through the mountains of western Maine. As a child she got the opportunity to go to a conservation focused 4-H Youth Camp where she learned primitive hard skills and about the environment which sparked even more of an interest in the outdoors. As she got older she started working at the camp and found a love for outdoor education and sharing her passion for the outdoors with others. Now, she loves taking people out camping and backpacking for their first time! With a love for snowy winter ski seasons, Squirrels! set her keen eyesight on the University of Vermont and has taken the leap towards completing her formal education in environmental studies and parks, recreation and tourism. Squirrels! holds Wilderness First Responder and CPR certifications.
