Sara Valentine
Sara ValentineGrassroots Program Manager
Originally from northern Virginia, Sara spent summers hiking around the U.S. east coast with her family. Her love of the outdoors is rooted in her childhood, but she didn’t pursue outdoor adventure on her own until college.
Sara spent her college career at West Virginia University as a trip leader for her university’s outdoor orientation program, leading students on backpacking, kayaking, and canoeing trips across West Virginia. She also worked as an instructor for an outdoor adventure company leading 13 to 18 year olds on outdoor trips throughout the Pacific Northwest region of North America. 
When she’s not studying, you can find Sara exploring the trails, rivers, and slopes of West Virginia.

Jessy HumannTeam Leader
Originally from Spokane, Jessy grew up climbing both indoors and out. From competitive climbing in high school to teaching climbing courses at Eastern Washington University, climbing shaped a large part of who Jessy is. After a stint living in Denver, Jessy is now back in her hometown, having adopted more outdoor activities — like hiking and backpacking — and learning how fulfilling a well-rounded outdoor lifestyle can be.
Jessy is always eager to learn new things and make new friends, and is excited about leading Outdoor Women’s Alliance in Eastern Washington!
