MEET THE CHILL TEAM OF EDUCATORS
After earning a BBA in International Business, Gretchen spent several years adventuring in Lake Tahoe before moving to Costa Rica. There, she helped establish the Sustainable Solutions Caravan, which traveled Central America teaching about sustainable living techniques.
She joined the Chill Expeditions team in 2005, taking a brief hiatus to start another non-profit, Beaches Local Food Network, to address the need in her community for greater access to local food.
Gretchen is now settled in North Carolina with her husband and young daughter on their farm in Southern Appalachia doing what she loves best which is taking care of her farm and educating people and especially young kids on the importance of local and organic foods as well as sustainable ways of living.
