WMRT Board of Directors

Board of Directors, 2014-2015



 Team Leader: Chris "Shooter" Mackie










  President and Fundraising Coordinator: Anna Boyle

  Hometown: Lander, Wyoming
  Anna has been on the team for the last 3 years. She originally joined the team to gain practical skills for keeping her     friends as well as herself safe in the outdoors. In addition to gaining these skills she has been able to gain personal        self confidence, leadership, professional communication skills and long term friendships.  
 When she is not saving lives in the backcountry or planning an epic Mountain Rescue fundraising event she is elbow  deep in the arts finishing her B.F.A in Painting and B.A in Graphic Design. When not creating a masterpiece you can  find her knee deep in powder or at the Gunnison Whitewater Park for an afternoon surf in her kayak.







 Vice President: Steven "Beerdsly" Auch

 Hometown: Burnsville, MN
 A lot of things can be said of this guy, but the beard says it all: he's been around.
 When not saving lives, he can't be found...











 Secretary: Whitney Zerr

 Hometown: Wheat Ridge, Colorado
 She has been on the team for four years now and joined because she thought that it looked like something fun to do  and she just wanted to help people.
 When not saving lives in the backcountry she works as a nanny, cooks lots of food, and goes outside and does  anything that sounds like fun while trying to catch as much sunshine as possible.




Treasurer: Erik Niemeyer



Ben Ammon

   Training Coordinator: Ben Ammon

    Hometown: Arvada, Colorado

    Ben joined WMRT two years ago, and stayed for all of the like-minded climbing and skiing partners he found there. He spends almost all of his free time ascending and descending mountains in various ways all year long, but prefers to play on ice and snow.







 Primary Mission Coordinator and Communications Coordinator: Brian Larson












 Mission Secretary: Delaney Adrian













 Equipment Manager: Erin Kearns
















 Field Trainer: Kyle Juszczyk

 Hometown: Muscatine, Iowa
 2 years he joined so he could run around the woods looking for people and stayed for the awesome group of people  who want to do the same.
 When not saving lives in the backcountry, he goes up and down mountains in various ways.
