Joshua McDowell

Wilderness First Responder
CPR

Hello! My name is Joshua McDowell and I hail from good ol’ Nebraska. I grew up near a small town on a family farm where the nearest neighbors were a mile away! Even though we don’t have any mountains in Nebraska, I love getting outside and will do any outdoor activity I can get my hands on! I am an avid hunter and bow-fisher and would rather spend my days hanging with my dog Brooke than almost anything else. I enjoy talking to others about my faith and am extremely excited to share my faith and serve with Peak 7!

Hello my name is Kara Rasmussen, I grew up in Central Wisconsin where I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point with a BA in Piano pedagogy and a Minor in Adventure Education.

I am currently a piano technician and teacher and enjoy working with people of all ages.

This will be my second year with Peak 7 Adventures and I am excited to see God work in the lives of the teens I come in contact with! I am also excited to be on the West Coast, as I have missed the mountains and the beautiful people who live there.
