Mary Glynn, BS
Mary grew up in Plattsburgh, NY, on the edge of the Adirondack Park, where she ran cross-country for her high school team and developed an interest in hiking after spending many summers at a summer camp in Lake Placid, NY. While pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science Systems at Le Moyne College, Mary spent a summer working for the Adirondack Mountain Club, where she acquired a love for outdoor living and climbed many of the highest peaks in the Adirondacks. Mary went on to lead many service trips to urban areas where she facilitated afterschool programming for children. Searching for a career that combined these interests led Mary to True North, joining our team as a guide. Now a Field Director, Mary continues to enjoy her time in the field with students and working with guides, supervising their training and helping them to further their professional development.
Mary holds both Wilderness First Responder and ACA Level 1 Canoeing certifications, and frequently volunteers as a Trip Leader for the Adirondack Mountain Club. She also competes on True North’s staff team in the 100 on 100 Relay Race annually and is currently training for a half marathon.
In her spare time Mary continues to explore the wilderness of the Northeast, often hiking up mountains, camping in forests, and swimming in rivers. After climbing all of the high peaks in the Adirondacks, becoming a “46er,” in 2016, Mary has now set her sights on climbing all of the high peaks on the Northeast 111 list.
