Matti G

Assistant Group Lead

Matti grew up in beautiful west Michigan where she was exposed to a variety of outdoor experiences. These experiences played a critical role in shaping Matti's world view and her belief in the healing power of nature. 

After graduating from Northern Michigan University with a BA in Environmental Studies and Sustainability, Matti spent the a few years working on organic farms with a desire to connect people to their local environment. As this passion grew, it combined with her love of shared outdoor experiences and led her into the world of guiding; first with sled dogs, then with canoes. What brought her to wilderness therapy is her desire to connect with people and share the journey of personal growth.
