Linnea grew up in Sacramento, California and has lived in several states and countries since graduating college. She moved to Denver in 2021, after checking off some bucket list items that include hiking the PCT, living in New Zealand and getting her Master’s in Adventure Education. She has been venturing outside since three years old, when her mom started taking her skiing, backpacking, and rafting in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Her outdoorsy childhood in combination with helping raise her brother with severe autism, is what inspired her to start working in the outdoor equity space.
Linnea is stoked to work with Big City Mountaineers to increase access to the outdoors and help facilitate outdoor experiences for youth who have faced barriers to the outdoors! She believes in the power of natural spaces to help people grow, overcome challenges, and learn new ways to process.
When she isn’t working, you can find her skiing, mountain biking, hiking, or attempting to make delicious food. There is always a tupperware filled with baked goods in her kitchen.
