Tina was born and raised in the PNW but was a bit of a late bloomer when it came to outdoor adventures. Once her love of the outdoors began, it couldn't be stopped. As a mixed race person however, she came to realize that just being a participant in outdoor spaces was not enough and quickly came to recognize a very real need to bring the principles of DEIJ to these spaces and help educate others about this. As an Event Coordinator for the nonprofit SheJumps as well as a small business owner, she looks forward to using her background and skills in helping make outdoor spaces more diverse and welcoming to all. Whether she is snowboarding, SUP boarding, backpacking, camping or hiking, if the outdoors are calling, you will be sure to find her there.
