Meet the Guides
We’re so lucky to have Eli with us for a second season! She rocked the office last year but decided she really wanted to experience the river firsthand after working with our family at DH and getting a taste of river life! She’s from Spartanburg, SC and got her Environmental Arts and Humanities degree, and minor in Theatre Arts at University of the South: Sewanee. She developed a passion for outdoor education through experiences working with Moondance Adventures and NOLS. She has her Swiftwater, WFR, CPR, and AVY 1 certifications – along with her amazing ability to make friends with anyone, you’ll never have a dull moment when you’re on her raft!
Callie was born in Gainesville, FL! She attended University of Central Florida and College of William & Mary where she got her B.A. in Communications and Nonprofit Management, and her M.E.D. in Outdoor Education and Leadership! She’s a natural at anything she tries! She’s certified in Swiftwater Rescue, Wilderness First Responder, FA/CPR, LNT Master Education, AND Yoga instructing! What can’t she do?! She’s always down for a dance party, she’s great at hula hooping and always has a set of rollerblades ready for an adventure. You’ll always have a blast with Callie!
Though Ryan can pick up anything athletic in about two seconds, his specialties are snowboarding and rock climbing. Growing up just outside of Philadelphia, Ryan grew up hiking and snowboarding constantly, putting him in great shape for the track star he would soon become in high school. Ryan attended Penn State and earned degrees in both economics and accounting. After college, Ryan made his way to Houston to work in oil and gas finance. After figuring out finance wasn’t his thing, he left Houston to fulfill his calling to the outdoors in Jackson Hole. When Ryan’s not on the river, you can find him cheering on any Penn State sports team or dining out at Glorietta. We are so lucky to have Ryan on the river with us this year!
