Michele Diamond has been backpacking the Sierras and hiking local bay area trails since 1991. She’s been helping lead for the Sierra Club Outings since 2013. It’s been a wonderful experience: exploring new trails, meeting great people and now new friends. She loves to share the hidden gems of the backcountry and local open spaces. And she really enjoys photographing her journeys and adventures to share with friends and family. Off the trail, she loves her time volunteering as a sea kayak guide, bringing people with special needs on adventures on SF Bay. She works as a physical therapist assistant and is certified as Wilderness First Responder.
