I’m a long distance hiker from the San Francisco Bay Area who is also passionate about human connection. My writing focuses on outdoor adventures and relationships. They may seem unrelated, but I believe that healthy intimacy 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. In 2018, I wanted to help more young women embark on their own personal transformation journeys. That’s why I hiked 2,300 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail to fundraise for girl empowerment nonprofits. 100% of what we raised during my six-month hike directly supported three women-run organizations that teach girls self-respect, bravery and camaraderie in the outdoors.
