When I first came to Western, I was planning on being a business major. However, after taking a travel workshop with Dr. Mike McGowan to the Apostle Islands, I immediately declared my major as Recreation, Park and Tourism Administration with an emphasis on Adventure Recreation and Outdoor Education. As soon as I heard about ECOEE, I was hooked. This is a once in a life time opportunity and I would kick myself in the butt if I didn’t take it. I’m so excited to travel to Canada and Mexico and to do things I’ve never done before, like climbing in Joshua Tree. I hope to come back from ECOEE as a certified Outdoor Leader so I can start leading my own expeditions. I planned my first bicycle tour for the summer of 2010 from the southwest side of Chicago up to Pentwater, Michigan. Hopefully, after ECOEE, I can find a way to get paid for things like that.
