The Backstory

AWAY Retreats Founder

Meet Lindsay


In 1998, I found that traveling was the answer to my insatiable curiosity about different places and cultures around the world.  

I began leading hiking, caving and service-learning programs for local teenagers.  

I went on to spend 75 days living in the wilderness in Alaska, on an intense outdoor leadership training course (NOLS). 


By 2003, I was implementing multi-week adventure programs for groups within the U.S. and abroad. 

Over the following 15 years, I worked as a sea kayaking guide, backpacking instructor, English teacher, multi-sport adventure guide and more. 

This led me to designing and implementing international programs for thousands of students at Broadreach. One of my favorite parts of this position was supporting and managing teams of instructors, ensuring life-altering trips for participants.


A few of my memorable experiences include drinking tea in villages in Nepal, white-water rafting in New Zealand, attending a ceremony with monks in Thailand and living in Costa Rica for a summer with my then toddlers.
