Show Notes

Iggy has spent a lot of time outside entreating fifth graders to jump out of trees while hooked to ropes or scaring the crap out of them by hiking in woods at night under the guise of environmental education.  After ratcheting up the intensity she progressed to instructing personal growth oriented canoe/backpacking and dogsled/ski expeditions in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Doing this work with teens and adults made her realize that as the age of the participants increased it was her job to make sure the sophistication and impact of conversation topics kept pace.  Along the way she earned a Master’s Degree in Experiential Education and a teaching license in English Language Arts while completing training on topics like: conflict resolution, restorative justice and mental health first aid mixed with technical wilderness travel and safety skills.  Iggy cultivates masterminds and brings together leaders so they can be more awesome in their work, sport or life.
