As Assistant Field Director for Evoke Entrada, Noah provides support to field staff through weekly overnight field visits where he interacts with the clients and staff. Noah believes in the power of shared experiences as a means of connecting and guiding growth. He values Evoke’s framework and the growth individuals can gain from engaging in new, challenging experiences and taking time to reflect on what it means to meet those opportunities with one’s whole self and an open mind.

Noah graduated from University of Wisconsin Stevens Point with a Bachelor of Science degree, studying Biology and Natural Sciences with emphases in botany, biology, chemistry, and geology. While attending UWSP Noah managed the university climbing wall and was active in several extracurricular clubs and activities. After graduating, Noah went on to manage at a local natural and organic food cooperative. He left to begin working as a field instructor at Evoke Entrada in 2014, eventually becoming a mentor level staff. In 2016 Noah was honored with the Jumping Mouse Award at the Outdoor Behavioral Health Council’s Wilderness Therapy Symposium for outstanding performance in the field.

Noah grew up in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. His family shared adventures in camping, kayaking, sailing, and traveling the country throughout his life. He attributes a close connection with his siblings and parents as one of the most impactful aspects of his life. Many of his interests and qualities have been sparked through learning alongside them.

Noah fills his free time with rock climbing, sailing, scuba diving, playing guitar and piano, writing, and exploring the beautiful environments and landscapes that the southwest offers. As much as being active is a big part of his life, Noah also enjoys a long weekend of reading and relaxing.
