Gemina got her start in the outdoors early on, with the better part of the first three years of her life spent in a backpack or a tent exploring the American southwest and northern Mexico with her parents. She has a degree in Biology and Environmental Studies from Colgate University and is a Master of Science in Conservation Medicine from Tufts University. She’s a National Geographic Explorer and Explorer for The Outbound Collective. You will likely find her out on the trail and chasing the light with camera in tow, a silly grin on her face. REI member since 2012.
