Jeannette MacKenzie, Hike Leader

Four years ago, Jeanette MacKenzie called Jimmy LeSage to see if he needed any hike leaders.  Rumor had it that once you got a job at New Life Hiking Spa during the summer you didn’t let it go.  New Life Hiking Spa hires 40 people every summer and for Vermont locals, getting paid for a three hour hike in the morning that you would probably be doing anyway was an awesome gig!

Jeanette was the perfect hike leader…personable, outdoorsy, she knew the trails, and loved Vermont.  All she needed was CPR training!  New Life Hiking Spa provides CPR training to all of the employees each year, so Jimmy signed her up and she was on her way.  For the past four years Jeanette has been an asset to New Life Hiking Spa and we are proud that she is covered in Woman’s World in the May 20, 2019 edition!  If you happen to see it at a checkout line in the grocery store, pick it up!

In her free time, Jeanette loves living in Vermont and has a beautiful fur-baby named Ginger.  Oh my goodness!  Hiking in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont with that incredibly cute pup!?!  She lives with her husband on a beautiful Vermont pond and they love kayaking.  Oh Jeanette…what a life you have!  Lucky lady!

Come and meet her this summer…and the all the rest of our staff.  We promise, you will have an incredible time in the mountains!  (Seriously?  She’s 59?  That Vermont mountain air is amazing!)
