Meaghan has described guiding dynamics as “marrying a stranger, then adopting several more.” She meets her co-guide, they’re handed a group of teens, then navigate environments that challenge them all. 



With humbling, heart-warming, and occasionally heart-breaking, stories from the field, Meaghan highlights the skills and strengths required for effective teamwork, communication, leadership, and risk management. She makes guiding as relevant to success in everyday life as it remains for wilderness expeditions.
