Alyssa Kroeker

I'm originally from the sunny Okanagan, but I have been calling Vancouver home for the last 6 years. I'm a huge lover of all things outdoors; hiking, backpacking, camping, etc. If it's outside I'm there. I am the currently working as a personal trainer with my business (AMK Strength and Conditioning) and coaching with local wrestling clubs in Vancouver as a female wrestling coach. I like to spend my down time dancing with friends, watching Netflix, reading a good book, cuddling my dog Storm and trying to beat whoever I can at Mario Party. I'll be heading NOBO on the Pacific Crest Trail March 26th
