  • Sarah

    Sarah is a retired teacher from Michigan who swears she is living the dream as Jackson is now called home. With a love for teaching, wildlife, nature, hiking,  and the history of the west she claims this is the perfect job.  Sarah especially enjoys guiding for BrushBuck when she sees the look of awe on the  face of a visitor as they experience Yellowstone, The Tetons or view a wild Grizzly for the first time.

  • Haeli
    Haeli Guide

    Haeli originally hails from Georgia. She worked for several years as a librarian but feels that education, especially in the spectacular setting of Yellowstone, is a far better way to spend her days. She now works as a wildlife guide in the summer and spends her winters showing guests the splendor of Yellowstone from the back of a snowmobile. Summer or winter, there is no place on earth more inspiring and she loves proving that to the guests on her tours.

  • Daniel
    Daniel Guide

    Daniel is originally from Colorado Springs and that is where he became hooked on the Mountains.  He has always loved the outdoors and it drove him to pursue a degree in Wildlife Biology and Management from the University of Wyoming.  After visiting Yellowstone and Grand Teton with his family, he knew that this is where he wanted to be.  Getting the opportunity to hike and explore Jackson Hole is a dream come true.  Daniel is grateful for the opportunity to help people see wildlife while also being a member of the Wyoming National Guard!

  • Nick
    Nick Guide

    My name is Nick and my wife Kelli and I have called Jackson our home since 2013. I grew up on the gulf coast and went to school at Ole Miss. I graduated with a degree in environmental engineering. Before moving to Jackson, I conducted environmental research for the Army. I worked in the study of ecohydrology, modeling ecosystems to help us better understand our environment. I love the outdoors and everything it has to offer.  My wife and I love to ski, fish, camp and spend the majority of our free time enjoying nature. The opportunity to work for Brushbuck has allowed me to see amazing wildlife on a daily basis. Jackson Hole is an amazing place and I am proud to call it home!

  • Patty
    Patty Office Staff

    Patty took a college ski vacation to Colorado and never quite made it home to the Midwest again. She found that she loved the mountains, and enjoys skiing, hiking and camping. When a family member moved to Jackson, Patty and her family soon followed to experience life in the Tetons. On a nice summer day, you can find her kayaking the Teton River. Patty brings her hotel hospitality background to the table here at Brushbuck and you just might find her on the line when you call us!
