Brett Albin, Field Instructor

Brett Albin

Brett is excited to start her second summer with Women’s Wilderness. She began leading wilderness canoeing and backpacking trips in 2011 in wild places like the Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota, mountain ranges of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana, and Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She now splits her year between outdoor adventure and teaching middle and high school art in a busy, joyful classroom in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It means a lot to her to return to outdoor education, the original source of her love for teaching, each summer. She loves learning about the natural and human history of the places that we travel through, and facilitating community-building, reflection, art-making, and , of course, lots of laughter in the backcountry. When she is not playing outside, she is most likely snuggling her adventure cat, Murie or biking around Minneapolis. She almost always has paint, clay, or dirt on her hands and face and she likes it that way.
