Maren Helfrich

Resident Coordinator

Maren has a background in hospitality management. Her passion for adventure, and the personal peace and fulfillment she found while hiking, backpacking, and exploring outdoors led her to work in wilderness therapy. While a wilderness field instructor she practiced and taught communication skills, mindfulness techniques, and a variety of hard skills that spark confidence in staff and students alike.

Maren is passionate about working with others, especially in their quest for mental and physical health and well-being. She sees wellness as a perfect opportunity to combine her experience in hospitality and wilderness through facilitating outdoor and interpersonal experiences that help empower our students.

Maren says: “I believe in this program because it combines all the things that helped me find fulfillment and passion in my own life. It is a true joy to share this experience with our students!”
