"I love hiking and have found true meaning in the mountains. I want to live this purpose everyday and challenge myself and others in nature.
Favourite trail in the valley: Conrad Kain Hut Hike in the Bugaboos, hands down.
Favourite piece of gear: Tough one. My Garmin Inreach followed by my bear spray. Both used every season and give me the confidence and safety measures to explore with confidence!

My outdoor journey started when I found myself alone in the desert of California without any backpacking experience. I had 4,200 kilometres of trail ahead of me, trying to figure out who I am and what I am going to do with my life. One day, the sun hit hard, I didn’t have enough water, and I felt miserable. I found myself embracing the adventure I was living all alone, surrounded by the beautiful nature. I was doing it, and I was so capable of what laid ahead. I knew at this moment that I could achieve my goal.
Since then, the outdoor has taught me so many things to bring into my day to day life, and I’m grateful for that. It makes me want to share my knowledge with our community and share my appreciation for the grand outdoor.
What’s a better fit than bringing my communication skills and my passion together?! I’m excited to be part of this community of strong women and I’m looking forward to meeting you virtually until we can meet for real on an adventure.Tell
