As we near the beginning of our 2016 season, we’re excited to introduce you to the guides who are ready to serve your family or your group this summer!

20160107_EAS_4340Elise Soniat is from Pagosa Springs, Colorado. She’s currently attending Colorado Mesa University where she is majoring in Exercise Science, but she has plans to go into Physical Therapy. When Elise is not in school, she likes to play outside either in the water (can be the river, ocean, or lake…She loves them all!) or in the mountains. She’s also a huge fan of snowboarding, volleyball and ultimate frisbee. Elise is addicted to hot tea and enjoys photography as her favorite “non-outdoor” activity.

This will be her 5th year working with Journey Quest, and she says, “I’m SO excited to be back for another round of crazy.” Elise says, “There are a million little things God has taught me over the past 4 summers, abut I think the biggest thing has been learning to be vulnerable with my fellow guides. I love learning to ‘do life’ with them as the body of Christ, rather than trying to do everything on my own.” She says, “We seek Jesus together, and that gives us a really strong team that is ready to go out and love on the people who come through our doors.” As a friend from New Zealand once told Elise, “I get to journey towards Jesus, come alongside people, and love the living daylights out of them!” She is excited to do just that this summer.20150625_EAS_1020977
