Ms. Carrie Wright is your LLC Mentor!
"Hi, Everyone! I'm a Geology Instructor here at USI, and the Mentor for the Outdoor Adventures LLC! I love spending time outside exploring and learning about nature. So much of my life involves the outdoors. I teach Geology, so I am intrinsically interested in minerals, rocks, mountains, glaciers, streams, volcanoes, etc. I study minerals and geoscience education, and I am branching out into environmental science. I care deeply about the environment--the preservation of National Parks and other places of natural importance, living sustainably, and environmental policy. I am a gardener (flowers and vegetables), and enjoy creating habitat for pollinators and other creatures. I have been known to get distracted looking at a cute bumblebee or skink. I love hiking, kayaking, and canoeing. I am also an Austen scholar with a Master of Arts in English, and I enjoy sewing my own historical costumes for events like the Jane Austen Festival in Louisville."
