I am inspired to encourage new and seasoned hikers to take on a hiking lifestyle and discover both the mental and physical benefits being in the woods offers. I did not discover hiking until I was 45 & seriously overweight, where I realized I lost most of my athletic capabilities. I’m still learning to deal with fears, phobias, and lies I tell myself on the trail, but on my journey I want to help others get on the trail too!
Nature opened her arms and invited me to come and find healing.
When I got there, she told me to fix it myself.
