Hey y'all, I'm Kelsey. I love root beer floats, my sheltie dogs, beauty pageants, Dolly Parton, vintage home décor, the color green, my mullet man of a husband, cheesy photo booths, and a good night's sleep. Hiking too, I guess. I am a nature educator & certified interpretive guide currently working in plant conservation... until I leave for my nobo AT hike in March 2023. Kurt Hahn said “There is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less.” I am hiking to see my "more."
