Glenys Hunt, BA

Senior Guide

While attending Grinnell College, Glenys studied Native American spirituality and ritual and intentional communities. She started working in wilderness therapy because she wanted to work outdoors with teenagers doing something meaningful. After working at another wilderness therapy program for one and half years, she came to Open Sky for its integration of yoga and mindfulness, as well as the strong ceremony culture.  

As a field guide, Glenys most values her role as a mentor and appreciates the opportunity to work with mentees one-on-one. She is kind, relational, silly, and strives to nurture authentic relationships with the other guides. Glenys loves gifting snacks with notes to guides as a way to show support from afar. She believes it's important that guides take care of each other in the field, and she prioritizes supporting and creating space for her fellow team members.  

During her time off, Glenys enjoys rock and ice climbing, sea kayaking, backpacking, writing, yoga, meditation, and music. She does as many of these activities as she can with her puppy, Yonder.
