Lydia Kopecky

Senior Guide
Wilderness First Responder, AMGI CWI

Lydia is a proud Chicago native and passionate about getting into the wild. While at Columbia University, she was a backpacking leader for incoming freshman, and during her summers led wilderness and service trips out West for high school students. She spent a year in rural Thailand teaching at a University and traveling throughout Southeast Asia and now has accrued some serious mountaineering life goals. When she’s not traveling and competing for the US Fencing Team, you can find Lydia rock climbing, doing yoga, or cooking up a storm. Nothing is better for her than time spent in nature
