Assistant Instructor & Organizer
Travel writer Gina Kremer has an insatiable thirst for adventure that can sometimes get her into trouble. Curiosity has led her to hike 1,400 miles on the Appalachian Trail, tackle the Commando Hike in Maui, and sample a bite of every buffet item during Christmastime in Iceland. Not surprisingly, Gina specializes in adventure travel writing, and has written for a variety of adventure publications. She serves as a canoe guide on her weekends off.
