Meet the Team: Saveria Tilden, CEO & Founder
Saveria Tilden (she/her/hers) has more than a decade’s experience in the outdoor industry, managing and developing strategic partnerships and experiential marketing campaigns. For two years, she worked closely with the REI HQ Team managing the partners & programming for Outessa, a national outdoor retreat series for women, and has worked for REI Outdoor School as an instructor, teaching a variety of classes including kayaking, SUP, biking, rock climbing, map and compass/navigation, hiking, backpacking, and more. As an educator in a variety of fields over the past twenty years, Saveria has experienced first-hand the magic that happens when women come together to learn about and explore the outdoors, and she is passionate about bringing safe and exciting outdoor experiences to women who may otherwise not have the opportunity.
Building upon her desire to work only with companies and organizations committed to connecting people to the outdoors, Saveria created The AdventurUs. Her outdoor marketing strategy and strategic partnership consultancy is based on the belief that there is an adventure in all of us only a lack of opportunity or mentorship. Then, convinced there are still not enough opportunities for women of all ages and backgrounds to learn and experience outdoor activities in beautiful environments, Saveria went a step further and founded AdventurUs Women. Confronting the reality that outdoor activities can be intimidating if not impossible to access on one’s own, AdventurUs Women strives to create fun and welcoming learning environments that encourage friendship and skill-building while connecting with nature in iconic locales. We are a company and a community intent on supporting other women both in their outdoor journey and as professionals. To that end, whenever it is possible, we commit to promoting and partnering with companies that are owned and operated by women.
Saveria’s volunteer efforts include being a member of the board of directors for the American Hiking Society, a backcountry trip leader with the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter, and the regional event coordinator for Camber Outdoors. She is certified as a Wilderness First Responder, Leave No Trace Master Educator, and AMGA SPI climbing guide. Saveria has a B.A. in psychology from Claremont McKenna College and an M.A. in education from Pepperdine University. She lives in Pasadena with her husband and their adventure pup.
