About Me

HI! I recently located to Maine so that I may enjoy more outdoor activities and help other people enjoy the outdoors. I passed my Maine guide exam last summer and am eager to lead others into the outdoors as I gain increasing confidence and knowledge. I have hiked and spent time in the outdoors my whole life starting in Canada, then New England, Michigan, and Asia, but in the past couple of decades it has always been “on the side” and with others. Time to start taking a more leadership role and adventuring on my own again.

What excites me about this hike

I have always wanted to hike Katahdin. About 30 years ago I hiked part of the trail, but started too late so had to turn around. I am excited to share the experience with others and also about the fund-raising aspect to promote nursing education and information about Maine and the outdoors.

Favorite trail snack

Hmm tough one — nuts, water, Pringles?
