ABOUT US

We've heard it for years, 'You're always doing amazing things, we could never do what you do!'  After working and travelling together in the corporate world for many years we finally decided to reach for the stars and founded Women Embrace Adventure in 2017.

 

We have a few passions you should know about up front...

 

Connecting Women Through Adventure is our first passion and the reason why we started WEA.  Every day we get to make connections with amazing women from all walks of life.  Some don't even realize how amazing they are which just blows us away.  We love learning about every woman’s journey and get so excited when we're able to provide opportunities for them to step outside of their comfort zone, even just a little bit

 

Continual Learning and safety.  Outdoor adventure comes with so much excitement and joy but also with risks and hazards. Ongoing training that we provide, and attend, means we are able to provide opportunities for women to connect in a very safe, supportive environment.  Between us, we have BS degrees in Human Movement and Psychology (comes in very handy!), Cert IV in Fitness, Wilderness First Aid.  We have years of outdoor experience on trails, on kayaks, on boats, you name it.  We employ only the most highly qualified contractors who understand what women need and want.  Safety first always.

 

Paying It Forward.  Every time you join us on an Adventure, a portion of all proceeds goes to our charitable partner Restore One who is helping one girl, one person, one village at a time get out of poverty.  We witnessed first hand their hard work and determination to make a big difference on our 2018 Embrace Cambodia Cultural and Volunteer Adventure and we are very proud to continue our partnership with Restore One .  

 

Our Families, it goes without saying, are our passion too, without the support of our husbands, kids and extended families we couldn't do what we do, bless their cotton socks!

There are a few more things we are passionate about but you'll have to learn about those when you join us on an upcoming adventure!
