TEVRA BLANKENSHIP,    PROGRAM DIRECTOR

Tevra’s love of exploration and lifelong learning has taken her around the world and back again. She has traveled to 28 countries across four continents soaking up wilderness and city culture alike and expanding her own comfort zone every step of the way. Tevra’s background in wilderness adventure therapy sent her skillfully leading groups backpacking, rock climbing, mountain biking, rappelling, surfing and kayaking adventures from the deserts of Utah to the Rain Forests of Costa Rica.  She is a teacher and student of intentional facilitation, and brings her depth of knowledge and experience home to Chico and to her work at Odyssey Teams.  As the Program Director for Odyssey for Youth, Tevra stays busy with a variety of tasks including: maintaining client relationships, designing and creating marketing material, program facilitation and staff training. Tevra dances through the day attending to the little things, and dreaming up new ways to empower youth at every turn. She is passionate about giving students every opportunity to succeed.­
