My name is Clare Casey and I am a sophomore studying nursing and Spanish from the beautiful city of San Francisco, California. My favorite things to do outside is explore new places through backpacking because nothing compares to waking up outside sharing a sunrise with friends knowing you have a beautiful day of hiking ahead of you. My favorite experience with Gonzaga Outdoors has been trying new outdoor activities like rock climbing and rafting with people who always keep me laughing and learning. My spirit animal is a juvenile black bear (Ive been told I’m not quite mature enough to be a full grown bear.
