Rylie – RN, BSN
Rylie was born and raised in smalltown Clarkdale, Arizona, central to some of Northern Arizona’s most beautiful outdoors. Some of her greatest desires in life are to cultivate human connection and personal growth through every adventure that comes her way. She received her first degree in Flagstaff, AZ studying Spanish and Latin American History, which opened doors for traveling and crossing cultural boundaries. She started taking Shoshanna’s Remote Rescue classes in her early twenties, which later would spark her interest to learn and teach alongside her. She shares Shoshanna’s love for the Grand Canyon and spent time as a First Responder providing aid to hikers in need of relief. She then found her way into an outdoor education company called Grand Classroom that specialized in recreating and educating school-aged children in various National Parks around the country. Four years later, Rylie went on to receive a bachelor's degree in nursing and is now working in an ICU at the local hospital in her hometown.
