Amber Smith

Before Amber could walk, she explored the moun­tains and ancient set­tle­ments of North, Cen­tral, and South Amer­i­ca on her father’s back — an archae­ol­o­gist and out­doors­man. As a teenag­er, she made home in Turkey and Tajik­istan. Amber has climbed rock and glacial routes through­out the West­ern Unit­ed States before falling in love with Wash­ing­ton. Amber stud­ied Geog­ra­phy and wrote her the­sis on what she calls Fem­i­nist Out­door Lead­er­ship:’ a guide to facil­i­ta­tion strate­gies for inclu­sion and par­tic­i­pant empow­er­ment in out­door adven­ture. She is ded­i­cat­ed to com­mu­ni­ty build­ing, open com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and inter­ac­tive learn­ing and looks for­ward to play­ing out­side with you! Amber is an AMGA Appren­tice Alpine Guide, Appren­tice Rock Guide, and a Sin­gle Pitch Instruc­tor. She is also a Wilder­ness First Respon­der and has com­plet­ed AIARE Lev­el 1.
