I am originally from Alaska and grew up exploring the great outdoors with my family. Starting from a young age my mother strapped a backpack to me and took me out on weekend backpacking trips and it has fueled my inspiration to continue to explore as an adult. I moved to Flagstaff, Arizona for college where I discovered a new love for a different type of scenery, the red rocks and the big open spaces. My heart is in the Northwest, but I thrive on adventure and exploring new corners of the world. There is so much to see and explore and I have the dream to see it all!
