Scott Andrews - The Brave Leader
Hello, My name is Scott Andrews and I own Northwest Teambuilding. I have been in the outdoor industry for over 30 years. After circling for a while I settled here in the Pacific Northwest. This is the community I serve. This company started in 2006 as a new adventure. That lead to out partnership with the Bellevue Challenge Course & Zip Tour and other projects.
I have a Masters in Experiential Education from Mankato State University. When I am not on a ropes course or a climbing wall I like to follow my passions for wooden boats, (you will see that level of care in the way we take care of your course) good food and time with family.
What do we consult about? Challenge courses and team building. It is really that simple. I have the best job in the world. I work with the best most dedicated facilitators in the Pacific Northwest. We run programs for great clients and have the privilege of watching people grown and learn. I have the opportunity to build beautiful things for people to play on. I get to meet people like you who are also passionate about your mission and vision. What more could I ask for?

Mary Phillips - Enthusiasm Specialist
Born in Seattle and raised in the Midwest, this chick's rural upbringing was complete with tree climbing, fort building, and long family road trips. This instilled in her a love for people, travel, and the great outdoors that set her up for an adventure in the challenge course industry.
It all started when Mary got snagged into working on the challenge course at YWAM Salem, OR in 2013. Since then she's travelled with the YWAM organization to Costa Rica and Swaziland to build courses. She also spent a year working at a zipline in Branson, MO.
This year Mary was conscripted into the Northwest Teambuilding crew, eager to continue developing her skills, connect with the local community, and pursue her life long dream of being awesome.
Mary is a Lead Facilitator at Northwest Teambuilding, as well as zip tour guide, an Assistant Builder, and Assistant Inspector.
