"Get outside! There are only the limits that you set for yourself. "

How did you first get introduced to the outdoor lifestyle? 

I grew up on the beautiful hood canal. My childhood was full of adventure - camping, hiking, playing outside and building tree forts. We road tripped every summer to the national parks and winter to the ski slopes!  

Favorite place to visit?

Mt. Rainier

What is your most memorable outdoor story?

I'll never forget when I summited Mt. Rainier in the summer of 2018 watching the sun rise, fighting 60 mph winds. The experience was so many emotions - fear, euphoria, excitement, exhaustion, accomplishment, happiness...it sounds cliché, but the experience was life changing. The mountain made me feel so small and insignificant and truly humbled me. Although it was possibly the most physically and mentally challenging experience in my life, I'd do it all over again! I haven't looked at Mt. Rainier the same since.

Besides going on adventures and being outside, what are you passionate about?

I'm extremely passionate about the environment and finding ways to decrease my personal footprint. I've been working to reduce my plastic use, use organic products, stopped eating meat, use reusable grocery bags, buy local produce, take public transit as much as possible, etc.

I also am extremely passionate about working to eliminate homelessness in Seattle through volunteering, fundraising, advocating with Plymouth Housing. I enjoy being a promoter of Plymouth and being engaged with my community on a deeper level.
