G.O. 065 - Jen Hopper's Road to Mentorship
A badly organized backpacking trip at age 14 triggered an enthusiasm for adventure in Jen Hopper. As an adult, she left the confines of a laboratory to pursue the wonders of nature. An accomplished caver, climber, SAR member, and explorer, she also shares the outdoors with students through the Outdoor Excursions program at UC Riverside. She and Jason met one afternoon to discuss the importance of good partners, a modicum of her adventures, and the perils of goat rescue.
