Our Officers

Anna Cuddeback

president | she/her

Resident Astronut
The three phrases that best sum up Anna Cuddeback are as follows: Ballin' on a budget, peace, love and dirt, and "may I please have a bandaid?" Anna is a chaco-obsessed life form, and her diet subsists primarily of cool mint chocolate clif bars and Dunkin' iced coffee. She is also emotionally attached to her water bottle. If you're not sure where she is, you can probably find her bouldering at Slaughter or scooping up deals at your local Goodwill. Like Dwight Schrute, she always keeps an extra set of Birkenstocks in the car for special occasions.



Sophia benmhend

Vice President | she/her

Roughly 80% banana and 20% sweet potato at any given moment, Sophia is a regular nut job fearlessly leading you all through the adventurers’ holy land: The Great Outdoors. From climbing at Peak to tromping through the Shenandoah Valley in her signature off-brand Timberlands, she’s always here to bring the party and the gnar-ty.

burke Haywood

Treasurer | he/him

~Professional~ Backpacker

Coming in at 5’ 15”, he’s a mountain of a man (if mountains were pale, skinny and had no muscle) and a man of the mountains. On an occasion most frequent, eye-witnesses have reported Burke coming to a halt mid-sentence, throwing his hands on his hips, taking in a deep breath of crisp mountain air and uttering the imprudent phrase, “Man, I just love a good forest.” Despite his tendency towards thoughtless utterances, Burke possesses a plethora of talents including, but not limited to: a master chef-like ability when it comes to preparing ramen noodles over a WhisperLite, an otherworldly capacity for getting himself hurt whilst procuring firewood, and an aptitude for playing that one song he knows on the guitar so many times in a row that your ears begin to bleed. Sounds like a pigment-deficient, blundering, feeble, mountain of trouble, doesn’t he? Truth is, Burke’s a coffee-slurpin, guitar-still-learnin, rock-climbin and trail-hikin crunchy folk just like yourself and he’d love to share an absurd outdoor experience (and his ramen) with you.



Mason Riffee

co-gear master 

Biking Guru & Running Guru

Mason is a known enthusiast of trail runs, mountain bikes, and green tea. He's stoked to spend another spirited year amongst the crunchy folks of the Outdoors Club, as well any opportunity he may have to pet their dogs.

Phillip reeves

Co-Gear Master | he/him

Phillip loves spending time outside, breathing fresh air, and staring at the stars (though he can’t identify much more than the big and little dippers). When he’s not taking care of his pet fish and lizards, he can often be found on a bagel-fueled hike or bike ride.



Matthew Houff

service chair | he/him

I've been practicing unexpected aerial dismounts on my mountain bike for some time now. I enjoy climbing boulders when I'm not crashing into them. I like being outside (duh), swimming in cold water, and taking deep breaths in the woods. I love adventures and seeing beginners get stoked for their first whack at shredding outside.

Eliza Stowe

PBR Chair | she/her

Probably out trail running some mountains, climbing some rocks, or painting sunsets. Very passionate about summit mangos and fire pizzas.



Mason Goodman

OFFICEr 

Mason is a known enthusiast of climbing, mountain bikes, and black tea. He's stoked to spend another spirited year amongst the crunchy folks of the Outdoors Club, as well any opportunity he may have to pet their dogs.

Lily Gates

Officer | she/her

Just your average tree hugging dirt worshipping mountain gal taking occasional ventures out from the rock under which she resides to romp around and explore with all ye fellow crunch monsters. Often heard saying “time for bed,” but is willing to trade that in for “time to shred” when there’s a most excellent adventure to be had.



JOSEPH ABBE

OFFICEr | he/him

I do not go outside to get a change of surroundings, or to conquer the next mountain. I do it to remind myself of the beauty that exists in this world, and to answer the calling I feel in my bones to explore all that I have yet to behold.

Connor Siggins

Officer | he/him

Connor is 30% caffeine, 20% bad at math, and 100% ready to send it rain or shine. He is a connoisseur of Clif Bars and enjoys drinking gratuitous amounts of coffee at inappropriate times of the day. If you’re looking for him, he is often sighted lost in the woods behind O’Hill, petting a dog, or bouldering with poor footwork at Slaughter. He is an avid hiker and trail runner, but also enjoys climbing rocks or falling off a mountain bike. The stoke is high with this one, and he is always down for an adventure with crunchy friends.
