I came to BOSS because:

I wanted to take control of my life again. I was living in a world full of fear and anxiety. I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zones so I could come face to face with my self doubt and conquer it. 

I teach at BOSS because:

I love the land we travel on and the rich history of the people who were here before us. I feel very passionate about the healing wonders of the wilderness and love to see others embark on their journeys and return forever changed. 

About Rachel Burduroglu:

I graduated from Western Colorado University in 2020 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Outdoor Education and Leadership. During the offseason I work on the other side of Boulder Mountain at Juniper Canyon Recovery center, a wilderness therapy program for women. I get to combine my love for primitive skills, rock climbing, canyoneering, mountain biking and backpacking while working with these women. BOSS has been a big part of my healing and self discovery and I am forever grateful for the community of BOSS folk.
