Before joining Open Sky as a field guide, Jackson spent time field guiding for a wilderness therapy program in Utah, teaching yoga, and mentoring youth. Jackson became interested in field guiding because he understood the power of therapeutically assisting others by spending time in nature himself. He was drawn to Open Sky because of the program’s emphasis on mindfulness practices.
In his role as a field guide, Jackson appreciates how the position pushes him to be the best person he can be and helps him find meaning in helping others.
When not in the field, Jackson enjoys meditating, cooking, hiking, singing, playing, and listening to podcasts.
