Who We Are

Executive

President: Debbie Dupasquier

Debbie has been with CRIS since it early years and has always stayed involved with hiking as well as kayaking even with running her flourishing business she is very involved and up to date on all things CRIS. Never afraid to lead a group to any destination and take an active role with the good old fashioned grunt work, Deb is hard working, loyal and fun loving and an all around asset to the CRIS family.

Vice President: Troy Becker

Troy, founder of CRIS continues as our steadfast, level-headed leader and visionary. By observing what he does with his time you’ll soon see that Troy’s mountain man exterior is just camouflage for the big softy inside. His humanitarian nature shines through in his career as a Firefighter as well as in his voluntary job at CRIS. Once you experience a ‘Troy Hike’ that pushes your every limit, you may think that he is some sort of sadist… but when you conquer the mountain and witness the view from the summit, you will understand his motives and appreciate the grunt work that it takes to get there.   

 Treasurer: Lynda Becker

Involved since CRIS’ first steps as well as teaching them to the Founder/President, Lynda has been (and is) a quiet and vital member of CRIS. We are lucky enough to have this lovely woman to make sure all things treasury related are dealt with in a timely and accurate fashion. On top of all of that she also assists on the adaptive winter activities. 

 Secretary: Katie Johnston

More on Katie soon!
