Hi! My name is Jamie. I am a Doctor of Physical Therapist, following my dream and thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail! I have been an avid hiker since I was 7 years old! I also play ice hockey and soccer and am just generally pretty active. I am a bit of a jack-of-all-trades with a background in art and education and I love being inspired by the outdoors! I look forward to meeting everyone this year on the trail. Happy hiking everyone!
