Rod Tucknott


California, United States



Rod began his outdoor and medical career as an undergrad at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He worked on the university ambulance service while leading trips and teaching classes for the UCSB Adventure Programs. Since graduation, Rod has had the opportunity to work as a raft guide for the Nantahala Outdoor Center and spend a few seasons as a ski/ snowboard patroller. Since 2000, he moved back to Santa Barbara to direct the Adventure Programs full time. If not in the office, you might catch up with Rod teaching sea kayaking, whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, ropes courses, Leave No Trace, or bouncing his baby girl on his knee.
