Prior to joining the Open Sky team, Calley received her Professional Co-Active coaching certificate and spent two years studying and developing skills to support others in their self-development. She also has an abundance of experience working in customer-focused roles, which has helped refine her skills in developing trust, anticipating needs, and building long-lasting genuine relationships.
Calley was attracted to wilderness therapy because she views nature as our true home. Wilderness as the center of development and healing makes the most sense to her. She was attracted to Open Sky specifically because of the mindfulness component, which is also the basis of the way she lives her life in the field. Her values clearly align with Open Sky.
What Calley values most about her role as a Field Guide is the opportunity to work outdoors every day and stay connected with nature. She also values the opportunity to support students in their work by offering them consistent love and care.
Calley’s strengths within the guide team include her ability to keep the team cohesive and working as a unit. She brings honestly and trust to the team which helps create an environment where others can be authentic. She also has a keen sense of awareness in not only her physical environment but also her emotional attunement with others. Calley has a strong desire and willingness to learn and understand all aspects of what she does and how her actions impact others.
During her off time, Calley tries to find a balance of exploring and hiking around the Durango area and traveling as often as possible. She loves to cook, practice yoga, read, and work on her own self-development. She also loves music and tries to see shows as often as possible.
