Stevie Strong


Stevie came to the Puget Sound from Champaign, Illinois, and has been leading kayak trips with AKT for four years now. She previously worked as a Ranger for Philmont Scout Ranch, and as a kayak guide both in the outer banks of North Carolina, and in the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior. She’s now happy to call Bellingham home, where she and her partner Tate spend their spare time exploring the coastlines of that beautiful city.

When she isn’t kayaking, she’s usually biking, chasing the sunset, baking bread, or fighting the never-ending battle against weeds in her community garden plot. She believes that the Puget Sound is the most beautiful place to paddle, from the scenery to the wildlife to the challenging currents, and she can’t wait to share her passion for this area!
