Portrait of Ranger
Ranger Brauer 
Ranger is a Florida Native with a love for the mountains that has taken her across the US to do what she loves. She discovered her passion for teaching in high school and really got to start exploring that in college, where she got a bachelor’s degree in marine biology and a minor in environmental science. She has worked as a park ranger in Jacksonville, FL for a while and is excited for this new adventure across the country! When not at work she enjoys hiking, reading, and anything that lets her be creative.
Portrait of Shirley
Shirley Ly 
Born and raised in Fresno, CA, Shirley received her Liberal Studies degree with a concentration of Child and Family Science from Fresno State. While working for the San Joaquin River Parkway and Trust as a Camp Counselor and Programs Facilitator, her appreciation for nature grew and from there, all she wanted to do was spread the love and knowledge of the great outdoors to others. In her free time she loves to collect houseplants and climb rocks (indoors and out). Shirley is super excited to be working with Sierra Outdoor School to cultivate curiosity and inspire others to grow alongside our natural world.
