The furiest of our team members, meet Lennox! Her education is her puppy training classes, where she learns how to sit, stay, and sometimes even roll over!

Lead Course Supervisor
Nathan started at TreeRunner in April 2019 and has never looked back. An outdoors enthusiast, he yearns for the brutal hot summer days, and freezing winters of North Carolina. He loves the challenges of working at TreeRunner with an aversion to heights. Every day he works he faces his fears and nothing is better than the feeling of achievement he gets when they’re conquered. Nathan loves to hike, mountain bike, and work on cars when he has spare time.

Jeremy joined the TreeRunner team in October of 2019. He completed both his Bachelors and Masters degrees at Wayne State University (GO WARRIORS!) and loves spending time with his family, watching sports, or enjoying some quiet time in Charlevoix, Michigan. The person he admires most is his dog, Yofi, because he gets to sleep all day and is always in a good mood. He says the best part of his job is seeing guests come to the park as timid travelers and leaving as confident conquerors.
