Brittany Aäe is an endurance coach and creative in unceded Mətxʷú (Methow) territory. Brittany is a process-oriented mountain athlete, curious about the practice of alpinism rather than the outcome of a specific goal. Her background encompasses solo, unsupported mountain ultras; alpine climbing; and backcountry skiing. As an outdoor professional she has served on Search and Rescue teams and co-led expeditions in the Great Ranges. Prior to founding her business, Magnetic North, in 2012 she spent a decade researching, planning, implementing, and evaluating large-scale public health programs on four continents.
Brittany holds a BA in Political Science, a Wilderness First Responder, and an AIARE Avalanche II. She writes, meditates, and moves in the mountains every day.
