Cate has a deep and soulful connection to wild places and all those who live there. She is a naturalist, tracker and wilderness guide, having spent over 25 years leading expeditions in the PNW and Hawaii. She is devoted to honoring the ‘wild and untamed’ parts of who she is and passionately guides others in the unfolding of deep self-reflection and discovery. Her entry into Wilderness Rites of Passage work started as a vision fast participant with the School of Lost Borders in 2012; this experience ushered herself wholeheartedly into guide training/apprenticeship. She has also worked with Rite of Passage Journey’s in an apprenticeship role. She is a LNT instructor and Wilderness First Responder.
