Hi! I'm Lion Heart and I love all things hiking. I'll be thru-hiking NoBo on the PCT in 2017. After being diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2006, I launched a more active lifestyle with a refreshed perspective on Life. I thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2009 and 2013. In 2015, I hiked 700 miles of the Continental Divide Trail. When I'm not thru-hiking, I work as a science teacher, perform as a percussionist, and rally for bicycle advocacy. No matter where my footprints fall or my bicycle tires roll, I believe in treading lightly on this planet and honoring my connection to all things.
