I’m a Communications specialist and long distance hiker from the San Francisco Bay Area who is passionate about human connection—specifically, cultivating better relationships with ourselves and others. My writing focuses on outdoor adventures and relationships. They may seem unrelated, but I believe that healthy human connection begins with reconnecting to nature.
Hiking for Girl Empowerment
In 2016, I completed a solo thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. The journey brought me more strength and confidence than I knew were possible. Now, I want to help more young women have the opportunity to embark on their own personal transformation journeys. That’s why, from March 25th through September, I am hiking the Pacific Crest Trail to fundraise for girl empowerment nonprofits. 100% of what we raise during my six-month hike will be distributed equally to three amazing women-run organizations that are teaching girls self-respect, bravery and camaraderie in the outdoors.
