Krystle Collins


OR, United States




Krystle is currently on the back end of training to become a surgical oncologist focusing on breast cancer. She believes wholly in the transformative and rehabilitative aspects of nature emotionally, psychologically, and physically. In addition to the interface of nature and medicine, she is an advocate for diversity and inclusivity in outdoor spaces. She currently guides with Wild Diversity in Oregon. She strives to empower people to have the confidence to recreate further knowing they have the medical decision making to do so safely. When she isn’t hiding from the sun in the operating room, you can find her off-roading through the forest or desert with her husband and exuberant dog. She enjoys trail running, backpacking, sport climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, yoga, and just about anything else that will get her outside.
