The daughter of a long-time female Grand Canyon river guide, Kiki was raised on the desert rivers of the American Southwest. Growing up in a harsh desert environment where water is sacred, the wilderness of Idaho feels like heaven on earth to Kiki. She loves showing people places where few people get to go, where free-flowing rivers and dark skies still exist. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Along with her summer season in Idaho, she guides full spring and fall seasons in the Grand Canyon with Canyon Explorations and spends her winters in California.
