Tired of feeling stuck inside with your kids?
When you’d rather be outside in the sunshine and fresh air, getting endorphins and feeling good?
I’m here to help!
I’m Kirsten Fraser Oldread — outdoor educator, wilderness adventurer and protector, and mama of 3.
I’ve been a Wilderness EMT, worked as a ski patroller, lead courses for Outward Bound and guided teens through therapeutic wilderness experiences. I’ve even been an au pair in Denmark.
After spending years taking other people’s children on outdoor courses and teaching them how to safely take care of themselves while learning new skills like rock and ice climbing, sailing, canoeing, snowshoeing and kayaking — all while pushing through perceived limits to learn how strong and capable they really are, I decided to try my biggest adventure yet and have kids of my own!
Not content to sit on the couch while pregnant (despite well intentioned advice of friends and family…) And certainly not content to stay inside after the babes were born, we’ve been hiking, skiing, and camping ever since!
I love sharing the knowledge I’ve gained, to make your life easier; through one-on-one coaching, online courses, and guidebooks, so you can get outside with your kids and make memories that will last a lifetime.
And in case you’re here to find out more
about my non-biz life…
Believe it or not, I’m a Jersey girl — born and raised in a suburb just outside New York City. I fell in love with wilderness at age 16, on my first backpacking trip to the Wind River Range in Wyoming.
And since I never felt like a city girl, I escaped to the mountains as soon as possible and now live in a tiny town in the middle of the Rockies in Colorado with my husband, three kids, and our chocolate labrador.
I love learning new things, camping in the desert, knitting hats, baking brownies, trail running, all forms of skiing, speaking Danish, playing guitar, winter, and chasing my kids on their bikes. I am passionate about spending time in nature with my kids and preserving wilderness for their future.
