Dr. Deb Powers has been a professional in the field of outdoor, adventure, and experiential education for 30 years in programs across the United States. She has led and instructed groups backpacking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, backcountry and telemark skiing, rock climbing, mountaineering, road and mountain biking, surfing, and on high and low ropes courses. Her students have included: at-risk youth, teens (single-gender and coed), college students, women, family from multiple generations, and veterans, on daylong trips to month-long expeditions. Being a facilitator and catalyst for student awareness, growth, and transformation through outdoor education for the past 30 years is what is most inspiring about this profession. I am excited to be at FLC in the AE Department working with, preparing, and mentoring the next generation of adventure education professionals, with the aim of supporting students in the pursuit of attaining a fulfilling and meaningful life.
