Amelia sits on a boat in the open water. She and her white and brown dog look out towards the setting sun. Amelia Tarren is an avid adventurer and climber recently in the Vermont Green Mountains. The other hat she wears is working on graduate mathematics problems at the University of Vermont (as well as tackling the occasional geometrically curious climbing crux).  As a child she enjoyed growing up in the Pioneer Valley and maintains a strong connection with the outdoor community ranging from leading workshops with the National Association for Experiential Education and at the other end of the spectrum, training with fellow friends to send Farley’s classics with socks on her feet and hands. She enjoys a pleasant lifestyle In the ‘Bayou’ of Burlington, Vermont with her family.
