Angela grew up in the mountains of Northern New Mexico, learning to ski in jeans in the 70’s on a rope tow. She has chased powder ever since, working her way through the AMGA Ski Guide program as an aspirant guide. She earned her Instructor Training Certificate with AIARE the winter of 2023, and has been a junior guide and Avalanche Instructor with San Juan Expeditions since 2021 and also serves as a tail guide with Alaska Powder Descents in Juneau, Alaska.
She is a Physician Assistant at the University of New Mexico, specializing in Pediatric Orthopedics, Emergency Medicine and Trauma Surgery. She has served as Faculty with the Diploma in Mountain Medicine with UNM since 2017. She has been a technician in Winter, Rock and Ice as well as an operational member with Albuquerque Mountain Rescue Council since 2013. She thinks there is nothing sweeter than powder skiing, mountain climbing, hiking or mountain biking with her husband Bill and her dogs Boss and Sue.
