BS, English Teacher
Hayden grew up on the Northshore of Massachusetts (Rowley) where he spent much of his time playing sports and spending time outside. He always had a knack for teaching those around him the about the outdoors and all it has to offer. His earliest experience with wilderness was going fishing and hiking near his Nana’s lake house in New Hampshire.
After graduating high school, he moved to Utah where he attended the University of Utah and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Outdoor Recreation Studies. Utah is where Hayden found his true passion for the outdoors. He spent multiple years in Salt Lake City teaching and guiding various outdoor recreation activities.
Hayden moved back to Maine in 2023 to take a position as a field guide at Summit Achievement. Hayden was drawn to this position because it gave him the unique opportunity to use nature as a tool to help those struggling with the same hardships he had once been through. After spending time as a field guide, Hayden moved into the role as English teacher. He now spends time in the classroom, helping students with their classwork and giving them instruction for building tools to support their academic success.
When not at Summit, Hayden loves exploring the mountains and rugged coastline of New England with his dog named Shiloh. Hayden is an avid fishermen and Boston sports fan and can likely be found on a local lake or pond if not enjoying a sports game.
