Heyo! I’m Fortune Cookie. In late March of 2023 I began NOBO thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. When I reached the summit of Katahdin, I checked the AT off my bucket list. The trail and her hikers taught me so much. Here's to learning, growing, and changing for the better. The day-jobs I left behind for six months were part-time newspaper reporter, weekly columnist, and part-time sales at an art gallery. When I returned to 'real life,' I became a full-time newspaper reporter. I'm currently writing a book about my thru-hike. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, beach glassing, chasing waterfalls and catching up on sleep.
