MEET OUR TEAM

Kim – Director of Sports

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 Trails & Outdoor Center is to provide an accessible avenue for everyone to feel comfortable enjoying themselves in the great outdoors.

Angelika – Nordic Ski Instructor

I have been on skis for longer than I can remember. I participated in a few local ski programs and began competitively racing classic and skate in high school. I have ranked high in women’s high school nordic competitions within the state and throughout Southern Vermont. I have experience teaching skiers of various ages and ability levels throughout New England. I am always excited to share the joys and knowledge of Nordic skiing in hopes that others will make it a lifelong passion.
