Reece Williams, 23, hails from Hickory, North Carolina, but was born in Denver, Colorado! Reece is a University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill graduate, where he studied Environmental Health Science and Entrepreneurship. Spending his early years in the Rockies, his made sure they spent more time outdoors than inside, rain or shine. He attributes his love of the outdoors to his parents. In his own words, Reece and his two sisters “learned to ski before we even mastered the whole walking thing.” Weekends spent hiking and camping built the foundation for what would become a lifetime passion. In eighth grade, Reece went on our Big Wild trip! That trip propelled him into two more Moondance adventures, one in the Pacific Northwest and one on Northern Lights. He still fondly looks back on his memories spending the 4th of July in the Alaskan tundra with a group of Moondancers that became lasting friends. After graduating UNC, Reece moved to Boston and began work for a community solar development company. He is now gearing up to pursue a career in medicine, but in the meantime, has found his way back to Moondance for another adventure of a life time! Have fun in Chamonix, Reece!
