Kelsey Wellington is a born-and-raised New Yorker who hopes to pass for a native Montanan. Her love of wilderness led her to purse a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from the University of New Hampshire. After graduating in 2013, she traveled to nearly 30 countries, working and living in as many places as she could. In 2016, she achieved her lifelong dream of moving to Montana, where she spends her free time climbing, trail running, backcountry skiing, and writing. She now dedicates herself to wildlife and conservation education while also earning her certifications to become a climbing guide. When not working or learning, Kelsey can be found acting as surrogate mom to her friends' dogs.
