It’s the best of all outdoor worlds for me—great people, great mission, great course areas, small enough to be innovative yet large enough to make an impact, great history and great future. God clearly uses this ministry for His work!
As the Program Director, Graham enjoys coordinating and organizing opportunities for groups. When he isn’t in the office you may find him “out in the field” when he gets the chance. Summit Adventure offers a great combination of ministry opportunities, relationships, outdoor adventuring as well as the business aspects to keep him busy.
Coming from Winder, Georgia, I first met Summit Adventure in the Spring of 2009 as an ISAS student, then returned to Summit in the summer of 2010 as an Instructor and eventually the Program Director of ISAS.
As the Director of Marketing and Development Jair loves to share his passion for Summit’s transformational programs with individuals and groups. Jair works from a home office in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. When he isn’t out promoting Summit you may find him skiing, coaching soccer, or working with his wife and kids on their farm.
Jake’s main role is to spread the good word about Summit in the twitterverse—and all other forms of social media, too! Originally from Washington, DC, where he worked in the fast-paced media and politics realm, he now calls Seattle, Washington home. Working at Summit gives him the opportunity to combine three of his passions: service, the outdoors and innovative social outreach. When he’s not connecting online, you can usually find him somewhere in the mountains, connecting with nature.
Seeing first hand the impact Summit Adventure has on people and then getting the opportunity to be apart of such a purposeful ministry was something Brian couldn’t pass up. Brian has a Business and Outdoor Studies degree from Alaska Pacific University. He enjoys everything outdoors as well as the techie side of Summit.
Carey first got her start as an instructor after working several years at Outward Bound. She now focuses her talents and energy towards caring for the needs of groups and individuals that come through Summit Adventure’s doors. From showing hospitality to guests, helping with the Whitney Classic fundraiser to making sure ISAS students feel “at home,” Carey ensures people feel welcomed and well cared for during their time here.
Although she may not enjoy “sleeping on the ground,” Valerie provides Summit Adventure with much needed bookkeeping and administrative oversight. Valerie handles many tasks related to the “day-in and day-out” operations of Summit Adventure. She also helps provide hospitality to groups coming through Summit’s doors.
