About me: I am an avid outdoor adventurer based in the Pacific Northwest. I was born and raised in the Chuckanut area in beautiful Bellingham, WA. I studied psychology and am pursuing a masters in counseling in order to go into a future career as a wilderness based therapist.
In my downtime, I am very active as a hiker and a multiple water-sports enthusiast, as well as an artist. I am an ambassador and volunteer for multiple local outdoors groups, including two specifically for women. I love being out in nature, preferably in the sun, whenever possible. My favorite place to be is on or near a body of water, be it an alpine lake or Puget Sound. For me, paddling can be a workout, a form of meditation, or just a fun activity with others. I enjoy sharing my love for it and can’t wait to get you out there!
