Georgia Arnold (She/Her)
Advisor - Marketing & Social Media
My name is Georgia Arnold, and I’m a Texas lady organically homegrown in Houston. In 2015, I made my way to Los Angeles to study film and art history at Occidental College. Upon graduating, I decided to make LA my home. When I was 16, I began hiking and rock climbing to conquer my fear of heights. While that hasn’t quite gone away, my love for the mountains grows with every step I take on a trail. I first joined Trailmixer as a friend, hiker, and supporter, but I soon realized I could go beyond the trail to support this incredible group. I am so excited to be in this position because I am passionate about helping organizations like Trailmixer become more impactful and grow their reach to better support their mission.
I hope to see all of you out on the trails soon! Happy hiking, campers.
Greg Szekeres (He/Him)
Advisor - Nonprofit Strategy & Development/Fundraising
My name is Greg Szekeres. Although I grew up in the Midwest I have spent my adult life in California. In addition to the state’s people and culture, I love its rugged beauty and the year-round accessibility of the outdoors and close proximity to wilderness. I have spent nearly 30 years working in nonprofit and academic settings, with a focus on global and domestic health, social justice, and the environment, and continue to work on these issues as a freelance consultant.
I am excited about the work that Trailmixer is doing, as it weaves together connections among many important things – including ensuring that LGBTQ+ young people (including BIPOC and underserved youth) can access the benefits of spending time outdoors, building community, and supporting the next generation of environmental stewards and leaders. Trailmixer encourages and celebrates the simple, yet profound, joy of connecting to the natural world outside our doors.
