Ally Petrilla

Ally grew up in the Cumberland Plateau of east Tennessee. With Appalachia as her backyard, she learned from an early age to love and enjoy the outdoors biking, hiking, backpacking, and studying the local flora and fauna of her hometown. A multi-sport athlete, Ally started her career in the outdoors as a fitness and cycling coach and is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine. While earning her Master’s Degree in Global Public Health she coordinated and led outreach trips in Latin America, which expanded her love of travel, trip leadership, and advocacy. In 2015 she shifted gears in order to marry her passion for the outdoors with her education in public health and moved to Colorado to become an outdoor guide. She has led multi-day excursions in locations around the globe including Ecuador, Spain, Costa Rica, and National Parks and Forests across the U.S. On her own, Ally enjoys bike-packing, hiking, and camping with her dogs, Chevy and Chowder, and her partner Jeremiah.
