Sky’s the Limit Fund Announces Executive Director and Coach
Sky’s the Limit Fund welcomes Mary Davidson and Robin Wolthausen to the STLF team.
Mary Davidson assumed the role of STLF Executive Director on March 28, 2022. Mary first began her career in marketing communications and then brought her skills to the nonprofit world and has served in a leadership role in the midwest for over 18 years. Her personal career highlights include managing a $53 million capital campaign for the Figge Art Museum, leading a $20 million capital campaign for a giraffe and lion exhibit at the Niabi Zoo, and settling where her passion lies: helping at-risk youth in a residential facility. She worked as the Director of Program Development at Arrowhead Ranch for 8 years, where she created its brand, raised funds for a renovation of the campus, and created and implemented an admissions program that focused on the needs of the families during crises. Mary sits on the public relations committee for the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programming.
Mary has a deep knowledge of the wonders of wilderness programs, both professionally and personally, and the life-changing effects it has on adolescents, their families, and their futures. She is grateful to be able to marry her two passions as STLF Executive Director; supporting funding for youth who need the lifelong positive impact of wilderness therapy and the opportunity to take an organization to the next level.
Robin Wolthausen joined the STLF Coaching team in April 2022. Robin has over 18 years of professional short and long-term coaching, mentoring, teaching, and empowering youth, teens, adults, families, and groups in a diversity of therapeutic modalities, settings, and activities. Specifically, Robin has worked in the wilderness therapy industry for over14 years, helping thousands of clients and families of all backgrounds to heal, find wholeness, their passions, and actualize themselves. In the industry, he has worked as a wilderness therapy guide, a field director, a parent coach, a therapist, and a transition specialist. He believes in everyone doing their small part to make the world a better place.
He is certified as a Wilderness First Responder, in crises de-escalation, in post-traumatic growth somatic therapy, and is currently a candidate for a Masters of Social Work (MSW). Robin has completed training, and is still enrolled in ongoing body-based therapeutic anti-racist and equity education with Resmaa Menakem and the Education for Racial Equity organization.“
About Sky’s the Limit Fund
Sky’s The Limit Fund was co-founded by Rochelle Bochner and Lani Dorff. After experiencing the life-saving impact that wilderness therapy had on their son, Rochelle and her husband determined that wilderness therapy should be available to ANY youth in crisis. Joining their endeavor, Lani worked with Rochelle to form STLF to raise funds to support youth in crisis and their families. Unfortunately, wilderness therapy is very expensive and rarely covered by health insurance companies.
