Kalyn is a wandering soul and feels so fortunate to have found her feet with Rites of Passage. While in college at the University of Washington she majored in Community Environment and Planning. The structure of freedom in the program allowed her to study Permaculture and healing landscape design, while minoring in Landscape Architecture. Currently she is working on her EMT certification and will soon be a Wilderness EMT and a volunteer for Search and Rescue. Kalyn believes in wild spaces and their capacity to heal. She is a lover of plants, herbal medicine, and cooking. She is also a certified Divemaster and enjoys the ocean, and its many temperatures. From sailing and living on her boat in the Caribbean to clearing trails in the Idaho wilderness she has learned the best kinds of medicine are a good laugh and sleeping outside. When she isn't on the trail or at the beach she resides in Port Townsend in a little off grid cabin.
