We’re delighted to welcome Aileen Gardner to the Gaia GPS team. She’s been training with us the last two weeks as the newest member of our Adventure Support team, and she’s already jumped in with thoughtful editing and other contributions to writing and marketing.
Aileen adds another smart and outdoor-focused person to the Gaia GPS roster. She earned her B.S. in business administration from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. She once did a 4-month roadtrip, replete with backpacking and mountain biking, and now spends all her free time exploring the mountains and trails around Portland.
Fun fact: Around this time next year, Aileen is likely to be answering your adventure questions from an off-grid tiny house in the mountains of Central Oregon. She is currently hashing out design details for a 150-200 square foot eco home, and construction is due to start next summer. Living a fairly simplified life already, and spending the majority of her time outdoors, it seemed only natural for Aileen to venture further off-grid, into a smaller space.
