"Natalie is an inspiration. She is very knowledgeable, including extensive Search and Rescue experience, best instructor I've ever had, and has a delightful personality!"


"...thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for showing me the kind of person I can be and empowering me in every way to help others in need. The WFR course alone has opened so many doors for me and I know that I will carry this for the rest of my life."


"I thought I had seen the best, but N.B. is right up there and earlier in her career. Top echelon of outdoor professionals. This is clearly in her blood!"


"It is because of the lessons that you taught me that I saved a life today. I can never thank you enough for passing down the knowledge that I did not think I would ever have to use. I may have responded but you are the true hero Natalie. Thank you."


"I felt insanely confident when evaluating her injuries and creating a communication/evacuation plan.. So happy to have had your amazing instruction and would take the class again in a heartbeat."

Kyle S

The class was challenging. Patient engagements often hard. And I am truly grateful for the opportunity to learn by doing; the drills are so valuable and essential. I'm a much better prepared WFR for it

Bill Voight

Natalie blew me away with her knowledge, passion, and excellent teaching skills. Throughout her WFR Recertification class, I felt challenged, supported, and empowered. A great teacher, making greater guides.


Your passion for wilderness education was evident ... and immediately attracted me to your offerings. Your instruction style was direct, corrective, repetitive, when necessary, and the entire time I could still feel the love you have for the curriculum and the desire to send us onward as stewards of your studio...I was grateful for every piece of instruction.

About Natalie’s Gut-Z Journey

My mission is to break down limitations for outdoor enthusiasts by building skills and confidence.  I believe outdoor experiences are transformative and should be accessible to everyone.

I began sharing the outdoors with others as a guide in 2002. Outdoor guiding and field safety have taken me to locations in the US, Mexico, South America, New Zealand and Antarctica. My education background in exercise health science and nutrition has given me the opportunity to coach professional and recreational athletes. I’ve taught wilderness medical courses across the US and have been a  hypothermia and survival expert for the film industry.

I continue to grow my personal experiences to help inspire and enrich my courses and clinics. You can learn more about my story and credentials here.
