My name is Jen (@REI-JenK) and I am the community manager. I have worked for REI for 17 years, having spent most of that time in our retail stores. I have done almost all outdoor activities, and love many of them, but don't consider myself an expert in any!
My name is John (@REI-JohnJ) and I am a community moderator. I have worked for REI for almost 14 years, starting in the PNW before moving to New England and then to Fairbanks, Alaska, where I have been for 6 years. My first love is mountaineering, but since having kids, we now try to spend as much time as we can outside as a family. We enjoy mountain biking, camping, paddling, hiking and rock climbing.
