Emily Nielson

Biography: Emily Nielson’s first real experience in the outdoor industry was an Outward Bound trip in North Carolina when she was 15. Though she had often been camping with her family, this trip revealed to her that she could make a living in the outdoors—and that those who do so have a significant impact on the people they bring outside with them. Through the outdoors, Emily gained a sense of self-confidence and self-reliance that she feels she could not have acquired any other way. After graduating from Florida State University, where she studied Conservation Biology and Philosophy, Emily moved to California to teach at an outdoor science school, and she has remained in the outdoor industry ever since. She is currently a Sales Manager for REI in the Southern California region. She loves to rock climb, backpack, trail run, ski, and mountain bike regularly, and she is always looking for tricks to make cooking for these activities quick and easy, without having to resort to pre-packaged dreck! • Hometown: Upland, CA • Quote: “The wilderness is my comfort zone, and I want to share that feeling with everyone.”
