Cat

Hi guys! I'm Cat! I am a recent graduate of the University of Georgia and now I am out adventuring through Colorado while in grad school for military counseling. I love school, Colorado and my job at REI but I am choosing to leave it all for 6 months to walk through the woods with a true friend who was crazy enough to join me. From Colorado to Georgia to KATAHDIN!I am excited about joining this community! Please feel free to reach out to me -- I would love to hear from you!
