Ann Marie Beresford

Executive Director

Ann Marie came to ASA as an intern in the fall of 2006 after working at a summer camp for people with disabilities. She has worked at ASA as a volunteer, an intern, a staff instructor, and as the program director. She is a commercial raft guide, a swift water rescue technician, has her wilderness first responder certification, and is a Leave No Trace Trainer. Her favorite days at ASA are when she is behind the oars of a raft or on a chairlift with participants and volunteers. When she is not at work, she can be found making snow angels, playing in the mountains with her husband and daughter, and chasing after their dog.

Maggie is a proud Michigander with a Masters of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership and a Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma from Grand Valley State University to pair with a Bachelors of Business Administration from Western Michigan University. As a Certified Nonprofit Professional, she first fell in love with missions that facilitate transformative experiences in the great outdoors growing up in Girl Scouts and the YMCA. When not in the office, you can find Mags playing sports with friends, volunteering at special events, and frolicking around Durango’s best swimming holes to find the closest comparison to a Great Lake. Maggie joined ASA in May 2023 and is stoked to be on the team!
