Hi! I'm Zoë. By trade, I'm a User Experience Designer living in La Grande, Oregon. By passion, I'm a full-time adventurer who enjoys hiking, skiing, globetrotting, reading, and baking. In 2016 I completed a NOBO thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, and have been trying my best to get back to trails as much as possible ever since. Why the AT? Growing up in North Carolina instilled in me a love for the Appalachians that I haven't been able to shake (not that I'd want to), so it seemed like a perfect first thru-hike. My current backyard is the Eagle Cap Wilderness in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, and I've loved exploring all that it has to offer.
