Head of Instructor Development
Thor oversees our field department as the Head of Instructor Development. He helps coordinate group scheduling and staffing, in addition to visiting groups weekly to support students and staff alike. Before coming to trails Thor earned his degree in Elementary Education from Montana State University and taught 4th grade in his home state of Alaska. He has also spent time as a river guide all over our fair nation as well as abroad. Thor credits much of his own mental and emotional development to time spent in the wilderness, and enjoys few things more than sharing the healing power of the outdoors with young people. When he isn’t visiting a group or working to support field staff he can be found on a river paddling, fishing, or just watching the bubbles.
