Meet your GOALS leader - Maurissa Moore


After over a decade of teaching in a classroom, Maurissa finally took her students outside.

After leading GOALS expeditions through Cataract Canyon of the Colorado River and on Oregon's Wild and Scenic Rogue River, she now knows that’s where she and they are meant to be, and she’s looking forward to her third season as a GOALS teacher leader - guiding her group down the Main Salmon as it flows through Idaho's Frank Church Wilderness Area.   

Her absolute favorite part of any GOALS trip is watching students tackle new challenges on the river and then celebrating with them in the camp-chair circle, under the stars. Her second favorite part of a river trip is setting up and enjoying an anticipated annual tradition: River Spa Day. Who knew a river could be so glamorous?  Maurissa did; that’s who.
