Ingrid Carlson was born and raised on San Juan Island, WA where her passion for helping others, fitness, and the outdoors first started. Graduating from Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA, Ingrid double majored in Psychology and Spanish. In 2013, she moved to Colorado to ski instruct at Copper Mountain and dive deeper into her passion for the outdoors. As most locals share a similar story, she came for the winter and stayed for the amazing summers. Ingrid has called Summit her home ever since.

She is passionate about treating the whole person; mind, body, and spirit.
