Ryan grew up in Salem, OR, and came to the Bend area in 2015. Throughout his career, Ryan has held many management positions. Looking for a role aligned with his logistics experience and finding a sense of purpose, Ryan found his way to wilderness therapy logistics, where he combines his management skills, interest in fitness and nutrition, and a deep sense of purpose. Ryan loves working for a program that helps families in crisis. He thrives in a position where he can support field instructors, ensuring they are equipped and prepared for the field and the DWT team at large.
Ryan enjoys keeping fit with a home fitness regimen and hiking in the wilderness surrounding Bend in his free time. However, when he is not taking full advantage of all the natural beauty here in Central OR, he loves to be at home cooking and reading.
