Cameron was born in Olean, New York and grew up in Ogden, Utah. He earned his bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Utah in 2014. Cameron then worked as a rock climbing instructor for about a year before returning to school at Weber State University to get his teaching certificate in social studies.


Not only has Cameron's been teaching for several years, but he worked for the a few years with teenagers at a therapeutic boarding school that specializes in substance abuse.

Expeditionary learning excites Cameron because it offers the opportunity for real, hands-on experience, rather than learning only in a classroom. As a teacher of Utah Studies, he is excited to see the students get out and explore to discover what makes Utah special.

Cameron's hobbies include rock climbing, canyoneering, and hiking.

One of Cameron's favorite quotes is from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: "The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but cannot forever fence it out."

Shawna Andreasen was raised on a sheep ranch and potato farm amongst the Snake River and sage flats of Glenns Ferry, Idaho. The family motto, “learn by doing” carried over from her father’s days at Cal Poly, so her childhood is where her love for experiential learning began. 


After graduating from BYU with a bachelor’s degree in Recreation Management and Youth Leadership, she wrote for her local newspaper and did freelance writing for Idaho Magazine and other publications. With time, that changed to creating online content in the outdoor industry while raising her children and managing all their recreational activities.


After volunteering for many years at Promontory and working as a classroom aide, she returned to Weber State to earn her secondary education license and English endorsement, great companions to her previous degree.


She is married to Mr. A, Promontory’s adventure coordinator, and has learned to adapt to his bad luck when it comes to the weather. They have four children, three pack goats, two dogs, and a fluctuating number of chickens.
