Jill McMahon

CPR/First Aid Certified

Wilderness First Aid Certified 

Jill is the founder of Outdoor Movement Project. Since 2014, she has created programs that allow kids to be active in fun ways. The seed for Outdoor Movement Project was planted in childhood when she spent all of her free time outside with neighborhood friends. The inspiration came after having her two boys and realizing there was a need for more play focused, outdoor programming for kids. Originally called Kids Movement Project, the business has evolved over many years and iterations. The name was officially changed to Outdoor Movement Project in 2021. Programs are now focused on getting all ages and abilities to spend more time outdoors, where movement happens naturally.

Jill's love of outdoor recreation developed during her college years when she spent time hiking in Colorado, Western Mass, California and experienced a life changing Outward Bound course. Jill lives in Portland with her husband and their two boys.
