I'm Katie (she/they), and I'm thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2022! After graduating college in the middle of a global pandemic and landing myself a 9-5 job, I quickly learned that I want more out of life than sitting at a desk all day until I retire. Nothing better than a thru-hike to start shaking things up! Outside of hiking, I enjoy running, lifting weights, reading, traveling, and eating good food. I am passionate about coffee, deep conversations, and finding new ways to live unconventionally.
