Charlotte Austin is an award-winning adventure writer and international mountain guide. In her decade of guiding, she's led climbing and mountaineering expeditions in the Himalayas, Alaska, South America, and more. Join us in Olympia November 12, 2019, to hear from Charlotte about how she's turned lessons learned into actionable hands-on tools for safe and successful trips.

A Wilderness-EMT, extra class ham radio operator, Leave No Trace Master Trainer, and AIARE Level 2 certification holder, Charlottee has written about gender dynamics in the mountains, the benefits of debriefing after every climb, and how to start ice climbing. On May 22, 2019 she summited Mount Everest. This collective time in the mountains have led her to create the Five Lessons of Guiding, which she will share with us as part of the Leadership Development Series, to help you make your trips successful and safe.

You can learn more about Charlotte on her website
