MEET OUR MANAGER, KIM
I grew up in southern NH and have been involved with outdoor recreation since I was a child. Throughout my youth I was an active skier and horseback rider. I attended Johnson State College, where I graduated with a BS in Environmental Science: Natural Resources. Afterwards, I spent several years living in the Northeast Kingdom and exploring the northern Green Mountains while working as a horse trainer and instructor.
In 2004, I moved to Alaska where I built a career around outdoor recreation. I worked as an interpretive guide for the US Forest Service, leading backcountry hikes and narrating tours throughout the Prince William Sound region. I also joined the National Ski Patrol which led to my involvement in the training of search and rescue dogs and furthering my experience and knowledge within the search and rescue community.
I am truly passionate about enabling people to enjoy the outdoor environment. My goal as the manager of Grafton Ponds is to provide an accessible avenue for everyone to feel comfortable enjoying themselves in the great outdoors.
