Renee Martinez

Environmental Studies

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures

Renee was born and raised in Northwest Montana. Her upbringing fostered in her a deep
appreciation for the outdoors. After high school she traveled to Central America and Indonesia
through a study abroad program. Ultimately she was drawn back to the mountains, completing
her degree in Environmental Studies at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah.

When it’s not ski season, Renee can be found backpacking, climbing, canyoneering and
mountain biking with her trusty adventure pup, Indy. Renee plans to pursue her passion for
environmental activism through a career in the nonprofit world and maintaining her weekend
warrior status.

She is very excited to be a leader for VISIONS and share her love of the outdoors and community
with like-minded youth.
