WILD SKILLS DIRECTOR

Email: cpelland@shejumps.org

Christy joined the SheJumps team in 2014 as an Ambassador and hit the ground running in the Pacific Northwest! She quickly transitioned into Regional Coordinator for Washington, and in the spring of 2015, she designed curriculum for an event she created called “Wild Skills.” That event has blossomed into the Wild Skills program, which focuses on teaching foundational outdoor skills to young girls, and Christy has transitioned into the Director of that program. Outside of SheJumps, Christy is a photographer, a graphic designer, a skier, an adventurer, a wife, a mother of 2 girls, and as Claire puts it “a human-package of stoke!” Christy’s outlook on life is all about positivity and defining success to mean living a full life – that’s something we can all get behind. We’re pumped to have Christy as our Wild Skills Director so she can stoke a passion for the outdoors in a whole new generation of girls.

“I’ve yearned for the wilderness since a young age – running trails, building forts and skiing snowy slopes filled my heart with wonder. As I’ve grown, the mountains have been my sanctuary – where I seek solace and clarity. Where I go to praise in good times and struggle with the deepest hurt in bad. The challenge and personal strength gained from the merciless and equally stunning mountain-scapes of the Pacific Northwest has shaped me into the woman I am today.”
