After graduating from Boise High School she attended Montana State University where she double majored in philosophy and photography. Kate considers her guiding job her most important work to date, finding her position as a steward and an educator invaluable. Kate is currently working toward a graduate degree at the National University of Natural Medicine in the discipline of holistic nutrition. When she is not studying or guiding for Middle Fork River Expeditions, she can be found in the backcountry skiing, kayaking, paragliding, making music, growing and making delicious food and figuring out how to make the most socially responsible impact possible.

Allie Vostrejs - University of Colorado

A fifth generation Colorado native, Allie Vostrejs was brought up fishing, backpacking, skiing and exploring. She began guiding rivers in 2008 on the mighty Arkansas River. Since then, she has guided all over Colorado, Utah, Oregon and Idaho. In 2014 she began guiding on the Middle Fork of the Salmon in the Frank Church Wilderness, a magical place with which she has fallen deeply in love. The Middle Fork continues to push all aspects of her guiding, from understanding the dynamic flux of the river system to learning and interpreting its complex connection to human history. Allie is currently completing a master’s degree in landscape architecture at the University of Colorado. She plans to use her degree to design places that inspire care and appreciation for the natural world. Believing that all people deserve access to nature, she plans to work to create a more resilient relationship between people and their environment.
