Hola! So, I kind of sorta love hiking. I hiked roughly 450 miles of the Appalachian Trail in 2014, but my goal is to complete the entire trail southbound after I finish grad school in June this year. I am super passionate about hiking (obviously), writing, mountain biking (except I wreck A LOT), yoga, vegan cooking, educating the youth of our nation (or just Arizona), and loving the hell out of my two dogs.
