Spencer Ott, TRS, CTRS
Brief info

Originally from the midwest, Spencer moved west for school and began
his college career studying English Education at Brigham Young
University of Idaho. While living in Idaho, Spencer took advantage of
the many outdoor activities that Idaho offers and learned to mountain
bike, rock climb, ski, and kayak. With a deep passion for the outdoors,
Spencer changed his major to Recreation Therapy and has been using
adventure-based activities to teach lessons in a variety of settings,
including wilderness therapy, residential treatment centers, mental
health workshops for college students, and executive retreats for
successful businesses. Spencer graduated with a bachelor’s in Recreation
Therapy in 2020.

From a young age, Spencer knew he wanted to work with adolescents and
help them through the confusing and challenging navigation that life as
a teenager brings. Much like finding meaning through metaphor in books
and poetry, Spencer uses activities to help adolescents discover life
lessons, confidence, and mental health skills. He is excited to join the
Cascade team and to help adolescent girls learn about themselves through
experiential activities.

Spencer’s number 1 signature strength is learning new things. When he
is not at Cascade you will likely find Spencer reading new books, trying
out new hobbies, or doing things he already loves, such as rock climbing
and mountain biking.
