I'm a journalist, a backpacker, a master naturalist, a certified interpretive guide, and a lover of trails and travel. On April 26, 2023, I'm setting out on an interpretive section hike of the AT, highlighting the natural and cultural history of different points on the trail. Keep an eye out for updates right here on The Trek! My husband and I also manage www.COVID19WallofMemories.org, a website dedicated to memorializing people who have died of COVID-19 in this country and to educating and informing people about the disease.
