Have you ever tried spreading cold butter on toast? I'm a quirky and complex mess with an unrequited love for anything dairy. I am also a student of the universe trying to find an answer to the ultimate question "Who am I...really?
As I recently celebrated 20 years of working in communications and marketing at a large research university I began to wonder what it would feel like to write less about science and more about day-to-day life. So contingent on approval from various docs, I plan to begin a thru-hike of the AT at the end of March while my husband Dennis tends to our two greyhounds and keeps track of me via GPS.
Favorite National Park & Sea-Shore: Glacier Lake National Park and Padre Island National Sea-Shore.
Favorite Book(s): Odyssey by Homer, Ecotopia by Callenbach, and Into The Wild by Krakauer. I am spoiled and get to live in the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee. I am a recent graduate of Johns Hopkins University where I studied Environmental Studies & International Studies.
During my five years as a ranger I traveled and worked in many different National Parks in California, Utah, and Alaska.
While I no longer am a ranger I still am passionate about protecting theses beautiful wild places and promoting stewardship and Leave No Trace values.
