Wendy Ewing is a Washington native and Northern California transplant. Growing up at the base of the North Cascades, her entire upbringing revolved around the mountains. With her family, Wendy spent most of her childhood backpacking, mountaineering, skiing, and mountain biking. She moved to California in 2009 to attend Simpson University and graduated 4 years later with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Outdoor Leadership. With heavy involvement in student development and the outdoor leadership program, Wendy found herself wanting help people experience the outdoors in the ways she was so fortunate to, especially women. With a strong passion for wilderness ethics and personal growth and development, she decided to pursue building Wild Beginnings Adventure Co.
Wendy has written gear reviews for Trek Tech, Innovation & Tech Today, and Active Junky. In the winter season you can find her back country skiing and both trail running and mountain biking the rest of the year. Wendy lives in Shasta Lake, CA with her husband, John, and their adventure retriever, Sauvie.
