Gabe Steinman, 22, has just graduated from UNC Chapel Hill! He was born and raised in Salisbury, North Carolina, surrounded by a very active family that kept him outside nearly every day. Gabe is an Eagle Scout and was heavily involved in scouting throughout his childhood. He went to Boy Scout Camp 8 different summers, including extended backcountry trips at Philmont Scout Ranch and Powhatan Adventure camp. All those monthly camping trips instilled a steadfast appreciation of all things outdoors and built a foundation for several hobbies, including backpacking, fishing, mountain biking, skiing, climbing, and wakeboarding! At UNC, Gabe followed in his father’s footsteps pursuing a Biology major that is taking him to Veterinary School at NC State next fall! He has spent his past summers chasing that dream, shadowing veterinarians in South Carolina, North Carolina, wild game veterinarians in South Africa, and even working as a wrangler at Moosehead Ranch in Grand Teton National Park. We are thrilled to have Gabe on board, and what better fit than to send him to Spain + Morocco!
Brit Hurley, 22, comes to us from Birmingham, Alabama. As a 3x Moondance alum on Hawaiian Islands, Yosemite, and Kilimanjaro, Brit is well-versed and invested in the Moondance way! Brit’s number one goal as a Moondance leader is to make as big of an impression on her students as her leaders had on her. In high school, Brit was a member of the track team and loved spending her time on the tennis courts. Brit recently graduated from Sewanee: The University of the South with a degree in International Global Studies. At Sewanee, Brit loved spending time in the beautiful outdoors. Moondance is honored to have her back on board for her third summer as a trip leader after leading our California and Maui trips in 2017 and Fiji in 2018. Welcome back, Brit, let’s do it again in Spain + Morocco!
