Kelly West

Kelly is based out of Austin, TX for half the year and works seasonally out of Southeast Utah for the rest of the year. She’s been an outdoors person for most of her life but really got interested trail running four years ago. She also enjoys climbing, canyoneering, hiking, paddling and backpacking – basically all the outdoor things!

I think we all know that most outdoor jobs are male-dominated. These jobs include tour guides, recreation workers, researchers, conservationists, forestry technicians, landscaping technicians, landscaping architects, farmworkers, and more.
