Challenge Course Facilitators

Anne Baker

Major: Film Production

Background: I started working at the Challenge Course the spring quarter of my freshman year at CWU. I enjoy working out at the Challenge Course because each program is different and always has unexpected surprises. The work we do out there and the experiences I’ve gotten from doing the course has lead me to pursue an opportunity to train as a stuntwoman.

Chiem Saeteurn

Major: Recreation Tourism Management - Recreation

Background: I like anything outdoorsy, whether that be rock climbing, skiing, hiking, camping, backpacking, kayaking, cycling, fishing, etc. I am also the starting goalie for the CWU Men's Lacrosse as well as the Treasurer. I like long walks on the beach and enjoy learning about new things so I can spew random facts every now and then.

Random Fact: Favorite animal is a sea turtle. I'm super interested in learning weather pheromones and cloud formations.

Background: This is my second year at CWU. I moved to Washington for college after growing up in the same small town for 19 years. I have fallen in love with Wasington and all of its outdoor activities: climbing, hiking/ backpacking, and plan to begin mountaineering this summer and ice climbing next year! This is my first experience working for recreation.

Joseph Cushing

Major: Clinical Physiology

Background: I have had interests in both the medical field and outdoor/ physical activities pretty much my whole life. After working as an EMT in the greater Seattle area I decided I would rather help people enhance their daily lives in the long term instead of just taking them to an emergency room. I would love to someday work with aspiring athletes to strengthen their performance and help them reach their goals.

Kyle Legman

Major: Recreational Management and Tourism

Favorite thing to do in Ellensburg: Hiking the Umtanum falls and Manastash Ridge.

Background: I've always enjoyed the outdoors. I like to hike, camp, backpack, horseback ride and now I'm really getting into rock climbing. I like the challenge it presents, finding the right route, how to switch feet and hands and developing my technique. Wherever I go, I always bring my 25lb Pomeranian named Diesel.

Major: Elementary Education, Middle Level Science Education

Background: I am an aspiring science teacher that wants to better break down the barriers between subjects. I am loud, outgoing, charming, overwhelmingly positive, and mildly intelligent. I have not been climbing long, only two years on and off, but I love the sport and the attitudes of those that participate in it. I am excited to be involved in the recreation field, even though this is my first experience working in the field.
