NW Regional Leadership Council

Daniel Cavanaugh  Oregon  He/Him/His. 

Hi, my name is Daniel Cavanaugh. I live in Portland, Oregon. I am currently finishing my PhD in social work through Michigan State University. My research is related to the use of adventure therapy techniques in mental illness prevention curricula. I have previously worked as a community and school-based mental health therapist using adventure therapy techniques to help economically disadvantaged young people in the Portland area. When I am not working I am usually chasing powder stashes at Mount Hood or searching for something to climb in the Cascadia region. 

Chris Russo  Washington  He/Him/His. 

Chris is a Michigan native and works as a mental health counselor for Seattle Anxiety Specialists. He has worked in a variety of settings from schools, community mental health, and wilderness residential treatment. It was an AEE conference in Portland, OR that first brought Chris to the PNW where he discovered a deep connection to the area. He is deeply passionate about connecting with people and building relationships through a shared sense of community. Chris enjoys most things involving water, biking, hiking, and spending time in a pottery studio. He is also always down to get some tots.
