ATAO wouldn’t be possible without the support of one Shawn Goggins.

Shawn is partner, partner in crime, and support and cheerleader for the team. They also insist their job will be to love all the puppies. More on this later.

Shawn made the gutsy move to Fairbanks, Alaska (sight unseen!) to explore the world of lichen in Alaska, and inadvertently got roped into ATAO as well. Shawn can be found hiking, locating moss, and petting reindeer, when not busy entertaining the future champs of ATAO.
