I was born in Minneapolis and bounced around the country until my parents settled down in NJ. After high school I hopped on a plane to Israel and got voluntarily drafted into the IDF (Israeli Army). During my three years of service, I met my current husband. We moved back to the US a few years ago, via India, where we stopped for a 3-month backpacking trip. We now reside in Richmond, Maine.
I am an aspiring nurse and public health advocate, and I am ready to add A.T. thru-hiker to my list!
