It wasn't until I was a sophomore in college that I started truly thinking about my life goals and aspirations. I had just finished transferring from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire to Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. I knew that I wanted my future to involve working with people in a ministry setting. I was-- and still am-- very passionate about being involved in the the public ministry. Around that same time, I had started co-leading trips for a camp: rock climbing, caving, canoeing, etc. I wasn't expecting to fall in love with all the details of leading trips.

Heavy like a knot made of concrete is how my stomach felt as I drove around the corner and saw the people out of their cars with cell phones in hand. The person was lying face down on the hill with their twisted motorcycle in the ditch. My heart rate increased as I slowed down and pulled off to the side of the road. I checked my mirrors for traffic got out of the car and pulled my first aid kit from my climbing pack in the trunk. It was a hot summer day and I had just left work taking folks multi pitch climbing up at Table Rock North Carolina.

Landmark Learning is the ideal learning institution for honing critical skills for outdoor, emergency, and tactical environments. The instructors were excellent and actual practitioners with decades of knowledge and experience. In my previous career I was a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps infantry. In my new career I’m a college graduate (thank you GI Bill) and avid outdoor wanderer.

Landmark Learning affiliate Mingai provided medical support for the racers at the multi-sport race in Ecuador. Mingai employs WMI WFR and WEMT graduates from around the world to post up along this rugged race course - maybe one of the most rugged and varied terrain adventure race in the world.

What happens when instructors Justin Doroshenko and Kevin Williams travel to Dahlonega, Georgia to teach wilderness medicine to a great group of people at a hostel near the Appalachian Trail? Magic, humor, and learning -- that's what. We had a fantastic group of students from all walks of life, and they're now prepared to prevent and treat people from "deceasing" in the wilderness!
