Hi, my name is Kate. I'm 22 and currently living in Colorado. I just finished my degree and became a licensed teacher, but don’t plan on teaching for another year. I’d rather take some time off to go back to my hiker trash roots. I grew up in the Eastern Sierras and ended up hiking the JMT in 2017. I got hooked on thru-hiking and since then have been working towards a 2019, solo, NOBO attempt of the PCT.
