Hey all – I’m Marina, aka Librarian. Native Rocksylvanian, 2017 NOBO AT thru-hiker, 2018 TRT thru-hiker. In college, I studied creative writing and archaeology and ended up on some amazing projects in Tanzania, Mongolia, and Peru. (The nomad gene is a very real thing.) These days I'm an MFA candidate at Pitt, getting outside as much as urban life allows!
