58 Adventures Explored

First Nations (Wolf Clan, Aniyvwiya), traditional, Southern Cloth intertribal dancer, Stompdancer. Awareness activist for rheumatic autoimmune conditions & women's heart disease, and advocate for better quality of life through natural health, fitness, & anti-inflammatory whole foods/eating with purpose. Avid about the outdoors since childhood. I photo/video document camping trips & hiking adventures for YouTube awareness projects, and to share with those not presently able to venture as far. Presently training for Half Dome trail 2017 or 2018.

Reaching others who are stuck where I was 10 years ago is my absolute passion. I have clawed my way back from not even being able to stand up most of the year in 2006, and being in severe intractable pain. I have systemic lupus, dysautonomia/orthostatic intolerance, Raynaud's syndrome, fibromyalgia, degen. disc disease/osteoarthritis, an SI joint and sciatic nerve injury, and left ventricular hypertrophy. I've had both shoulders surgically repaired in recent years. I am the No Excuses girl in spite of everything. If I can kick ass and take names, so can you.
