McKinley (20,320 ft) among many others on a global scale.
“Melissa is a true leader in her sport, and is to be admired as much for her climbing acheivements, as her philanthropic leadership,” said Bryan Smeltzer, GM, ZAMST Americas. “ZAMST is proud to have Melissa on board with our Elite Force Team, taking a lead role as we look to provide and further develop our Sports Bracing/Supports equipment solutions to those outdoor athletes as passionate for their sport as Melissa is with hers.”
Arnot, along with being a certified EMT and wilderness medicine instructor for the past nine years, has led expeditions to summit Everest in 2008 as part of the Inspi(RED) campaign to raise AID awareness in Africa, along two Kilimanjaro summits to promote clean water access. Most recently Melissa launched a non-profit to provide life insurance and coverage for mountain workers.
“I look forward to working with the ZAMST team, as we continue to provide the most advanced sports bracing/supports equipment solutions for outdoor enthusiasts” said Arnot, the 5 time Mt. Everest summit climber. “With the extreme conditions I face with every expedition, I need to know I have the best equipment by my side providing me support when I need it, and ZAMST gives me that security”.
