Meet Mandy Woodhouse: Ambassador AND Guide for One of Our Most Popular Trips

What made you want to be an Ambassador? And how many trips have you done?

I wanted to be an Ambassador because I love what AdventureWomen stands for. I love everything about seeing the world and traveling, and I especially love getting out of my comfort zone and trying new things. Being able to meet others who enjoy the same things as I do is a true blessing in my life.

I’ve only ever done the Utah trip, first as a guide and now as an Ambassador. I get asked all the time what my favorite part of the trip is, and I always answer “canyoneering!”

What is your second love, after travel?

Running and hiking.

Favorite Destination?


What sound do you love?

The ocean.

Describe your life in one word.


What’s the craziest or most out-of-character thing you’ve done?

Bungee jumping 440 feet out of a gondola in the Swiss Alps! I’m all up for adventure and trying new, scary things, but now that I’ve experience a bungee jump, I can say that it hurts my ankles when it pulls tight, and I felt so disoriented and dizzy, and didn’t know which way was up or down for a minute when I finished!

What’s something you’ve tried, that you’ll never, ever try again?

Bungee jumping!

Would you rather be able to breathe underwater or have the agility of a cat?

Agility of a cat! That would be super helpful climbing mountains. 🙂
