Hey there, and welcome! I’m a professional writer, author, photographer, and outdoor enthusiast. There are few things I love more than grabbing a camera, exploring a wild place, then coming back to a cozy office to write about my experiences. One of my core beliefs is that everyone should have access to wild places across the US, and I want to inspire more people–especially girls and women–to plan their own adventures. Adventures can take many forms. Adventure can be hiking in a remote wilderness, canoeing down a local stream, or learning how to photograph birds. Adventure can be taking risks in your career and doing work you love. Adventure can expand your mind, give you self confidence, and teach self reliance, traits that will serve you well no matter where your path in life takes you. Join me.
