Review Editor


Kathleen Sheehan was raised in South Lake Tahoe, and there was never a shortage of adventure with the Sierra Nevadas as a playground. From running cross country in the fall to competing in snowboarding in the winter to hiking, fishing, climbing, swimming, jumping, and skating in the summer, she loves the outdoors and all it has to offer. After a decade away from the mountains, she has returned to her hometown and now coaches the high school cross country team she once ran for. When she's not coaching you can find her slashing pow, hiking to and swimming in high alpine lakes, and jibbing in the garage.
