Bryan Wilson – Director

He grew up backpacking with his father, which inspired him to earn a degree in Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education from Brevard College.

Bryan has led trips all over the country and his mission has been the same – adventure with a purpose. He is proud to extend this mission through Black Mountain Expeditions.


Andrea Pelham

You can almost always find her behind the scenes creating effective systems and making things easier for everyone. Andrea spent the first two decades of her life attending a girls summer camp. She fell in love with the community that can be found in camp and continued to chase that community after graduating from Presbyterian College. She is thrilled to be a part of the Merri-Mac / Timberlake / Black Mountain Expeditions leadership team.
