Staff 

Life is the journey you make it. Similar to life, our course is different depending on who leads it. Each of our certified guides makes every journey unique to their personality and to what they personally feel will best challenge your group. No two experiences at the course are the same and neither are our facilitators. Here they are! (drumroll, please)

Cameron Ross
Managing Director and Zip Line Boy

As the founder of our course, what Cameron says goes.  Luckily he’s a nice guy.  He is a scuba-diving, motorcycle-riding, raft-guiding small engine tinkerer and can often be found zipping across the property on his quad.  He is an entrepreneurial and relational leader who loves seeing people experience new levels of growth and breakthrough. 

Anna Parr
Facilitator

When this New York native isn’t sporting a harness and helmet, she is a health coach, inn keeper and musician.  She loves to dance, sing old Hebrew choruses and have people over for organic hot cocoa.  You won’t meet a cooler girl.

Tim Parr
Program Director

You will never hear funnier catch phrases than out of the mouth of this Kiwi (person from New Zealand). Tim is the most trained and experienced member of our team and brings a heaping scoop of quality to the program. He’s an athlete who wears funky shoes we make fun of him for but secretly all want.

Jonathan Dobernecki Facilitator Jonathan hails from the great nation of Texas. He can do the worm, though this is only partially related to the first line, here.  A man of intrigue and adventure, 13 different countries have been privileged to host this ex radio DJ and hear his many assertions of his love for Jade. (This may seem like a simple and sweet sentiment, but the fact that Jonathan's encouraging voice can be heard from anywhere on the campus may bring some context to these utterances.) Jonathan has the hospitality of Mother Teresa, the diplomacy of Mahatma Gandhi and the speaking prowess of Martin Luther King and therefore is the man to greet most groups.  First impressions matter.

JadE Gutierez
Facilitator

Jahdmy harkens from Mexico and can do pretty well anything.  She's a fantastic facilitator of both ground and course activities and brings a bunch of insight and sweetness to our team, all delivered in her clear, exotic accent.

 While she may not love laziness or the cold, she does love to watch the nervous faces of our guests as she cruises by The Course in her shady panel van. 

Gio Figueroa Facilitator Giovani brought his many tongues to The Course team.  Generates quite the picture doesn't it.  However, 11 languages are just the beginning of this Mexican/Italian/American's many talents. As a facilitator, Gio can often be found playing on a variety of musical instruments, sometimes all at once, and preening his beard while his team traverse the elements. He claims these activities sooth his team and helps them to concentrate.

Brant Taylor Facilitator This California native is celebrating being a Newlywed. As his beard and ink suggest, Brant is easily able to blend in to city or mountain town culture without having to so much as change the twinkle in his eye. Brant has always hated Barney the dinosaur.  He can not fluently speak pigg Latin. He relates most to Yeah-Yeah from the Sandlot. He does love jeans which cuddle his thighs. And he brings all this love, hate, relating and talent, mixes it with a splash of lime to create a mind altering experience for those under his fun and diverse leadership.

Ole Matson Facilitator Ole is less of a leafy background guy and prefers to allow his radiance to shine naturally amongst sticks and industrial equipment. This man was not destined to be landlocked as a Canadian/Minasotan forever.  He has an interesting history of travel, exploration and adventure and he brings all of that and more to his teams as they traverse The Course under his fearless and sometimes quirky leadership. As the grin suggests, always expect an excitable time with Ole.

Caitlin Taylor Facilitator Caitlin boasts 3 years of course facilitation and as a result, can sing the alphabet backwards.  (A skill generally only acquired by seasoned veterans.) She can also write upside down, is a stage singer at least once a week and can do the worm if given a broad dance floor! Those from Caitlin's home state of Oregon are very proud of her. As are we. Caitlin is also a newly wed.

Lachelle Gentile Facilitator Lachelle strongly believes Pocahontas is her soul sister.  It's best not to disagree too vehemently.  She's a golden glove boxing champion.  Adding to her diverse nature, Lachelle has a non-stereotypical love of research and data trends... and her fur-baby named Louie. Lachelle is as much of a fun loving, outdoors appreciating, compassionate, understanding and tender natured leader as you're likely to get in a month of Sundays, at The Course.

Kevin Alvord  Facilitator This Weaverville native packs a whole load of outdoor experience, leadership and fun into one human body. Growing up in the Trinity Alps, Kevin has developed an organic outlook on life which is refreshing and inspiring. With a background that ranges from setting fire to forests with napalm (legally), to hooting for owls, Kevin's leadership carries a diverse experience which opens the door to no-nonsense motivation.  This facilitator carries a pack of balanced, down to earth mountain wisdom and understanding for any who dare to draw from it.

Sarah Matson, Denise Boggs, Kylee White & Ella Ross
Kitchen crew  

Without this small squad of scullery soldiers, we would surely all grow faint, weary and possibly even die.
This contingent may not be large, but manages to boast an impressive array of credentials amongst their rank.  
Surfing, quad biking, hitch-hiking across the country, long boarding and winning mascot championships are but a few of the past time actives enjoyed by the hands of these ladies, when they’re not otherwise occupied making delectable delicacies for our guests.
They may be petite and pretty, but don’t under estimate their power and attempt to sneak more home made whipped cream without asking. A state champion wrestler lurks amongst their ranks.
