Joscie Norris


An enthusiastic environmentalist, educator, rock climber, ice climber, and skier, Joscie (she/her) seeks any way to introduce people to alpine environments and instill a curiosity for these wild and fragile places. Joscie pursued Environmental Studies at the University of Vermont where she jumped into backcountry education through coordinating their rock and ice climbing leadership program. Like those who mentored her in climbing, she hopes to be that resource and partner for others, making climbing accessible to anyone. She’s taken courses on inclusive facilitation, adaptive climbing, mental health, and social justice work in the outdoors, always eager to keep learning. Beyond playing in New England, her travels have taken her to remote Mongolia and subarctic Canada for field research. More recently she’s been a professional chicken and pig wrangler on a local farm. Equipped with an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor certification, Wilderness First Responder, AIARE Level 1 and fun facts about lichens, she’s thrilled to introduce you to climbing.
