Reanna Leisure

Howdy! My name's Reanna. I grew up in a small eastern Kentucky town, but currently live in St. Louis, MO. Flannel shirts, weird flavored Pop Tarts, and jamming to Coldplay songs are some of my favorite things on earth along with my two dogs, Scooter and Honey. I'll be thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2020 and can't wait to share my experience!
