MEGAN MASON
Co-Lead Ambassador for ReWild Your Child

Credentials: Wilderness First Aid  

When Megan moved to Colorado at the end of 2019 she knew very little about mountaineering but had always loved setting lofty goals and crushing them. She quickly took an interest in 14ers and has currently completed 19 with hopes to finish them all in 2024. The rest of the year you can find her hiking with her kids or at The Incline (her preferred training ground). Hiking has become her form of therapy and provides her the release needed from the hectic weeks of being a working mom. She wants to show women that mountaineering adventures don’t have to stop just because you’re a mom! She is looking forward to running the Rewild Your Child program. 

GABBY GALE
Co-Lead Ambassador for ReWild Your Child

Credentials: Wilderness First Aid  

Being in nature is where she finds herself and re-centers. After committing to recovery from an eating disorder and alcoholism in 2015, she made the bold decision to sign up for an expedition to climb Cotopaxi & Chimborazo. The training process kept her outside, focused on learning the needed mountaineering skills, and true to health. Since then, she is half way through summitting the Colorado 14ers, has ran 5 ultra marathons, and is an avid rock climber. Her passion has only gotten stronger since having her son in 2020. 

CHANTELLE SHOAEE 
@The Hypoxic Hiker
Founder & Executive Director at Always Choose Adventures 

Credentials: Wilderness First Aid Responder, Board Member at Colorado Search and Rescue Association - CSAR  

In 2020, after wearing masks and adventuring to the max, Chantelle learned that her airway was 90% collapsed and the only way to potentially repair it was to undergo a major tracheaplasty surgery. This involved cutting open her back and attaching the mesh to her spine and trachea to keep her airway from collapsing. Unfortunately, the surgery did not fix her oxygenation (hypoxia) issues, so she continues to have to hike with supplemental oxygen.

Chantelle is excited to help the ReWild Your Child Program. Even though she is now an empty nest, she still loves to get out with her son!
