Hi y'all, I'm Aubri ('Timex'). I'm a queer, nonbinary hiker, backpacker, and trail runner (they/them pronouns, please). I've thru-hiked the AT ('13-'17), the Tour du Mont Blanc ('18), the Vermont Long Trail ('18), the John Muir Trail ('19), the Tahoe Rim Trail ('19), and the New England Trail ('12-'17), and summited all of the Winter New Hampshire 48, New England 100 Highest, and the Northeast 115 peaks. I'm hoping to thru-hike the Walkers Haute Route in Switzerland this July and section hike the WA PCT this August.
At my day job, I'm a data-crunching research nerd, researching everything from medical outcomes for hospitalized patients to social determinants of health. During the week, I'm trail running, rock climbing, and doing circus arts, and on the weekends, I'm generally out hiking some mountain somewhere.
