I originally moved to the Pacific Northwest as an oceanographer, but I’ve since found myself lost in the mountains more than I’m lost at sea! Backpacking and skiing keep me busy year-round exploring the Cascades backcountry. When I’m not out on trails, I can be found on roads around my town of Corvallis, Oregon, training for triathlons and marathons.
Ambassador Badge
I am an adventure seeker, lover of mountains and all things running. I run everything from 10k to ultra marathon distances. While I love a short run, I find the most joy covering long distances, completing challenging ultras, and surrounding myself with all the amazing folks that make trail running a community. Running is my mecca and runners are some of my best friends. Hope to see you on the trail.

I fell in love with the outdoors when I spontaneously moved to Truckee CA to work as a ski instructor. Four years later I’m still instructing, but now also work as a photographer and designer. You’ll most likely find me in the mountains, either climbing up or traveling down on skis or my mountain bike. Currently, I’m trying to balance work and play between my dual homes of Seattle WA and Jackson Hole WY.

As a Colorado native, I believe mountaineering and forever exploring are things everyone should experience. The amazing landscapes, wildlife, weather, and challenges I’ve faced whilst exploring are simply difficult to describe in words and even photos. Currently I'm embarking on a mountaineering project to hike to and photograph the summits of all the 125-named peaks that span 358 square miles of Rocky Mountain National Park!

Originally from Rhode Island, I have been living in Washington State for the last four years. Most of my time is spent on a board; I snowboard for a living and am an avid surfer and skateboarder. When I'm not on a board you can find me in the garden, kitchen, or on a yoga mat. I enjoy spending most of my time outdoors.
Ambassador Badge
I may have been raised in Florida, but I am a true mountain girl at heart. I love to spend as much time hiking and exploring the mountains or other parts of the globe! If I can't make it to the mountains, you will still be able to find me outside with my dogs. The mountains and the water are my happy place. Follow my adventures by clicking the links below.

You'll always find me in search of adventure! Living in Colorado allows me to experience the mountains year round: running, hiking, skiing, and snowboarding. When I'm not running or exploring the outdoors, I work as an emergency veterinarian. I'm also an aspiring photographer, follow me on all my adventures on Instagram!
Ambassador Badge
I'm a PNW adventurer and competitive downhill mountain bike racer! I love anything on two wheels, being in the outdoors and sharing a great time with friends. I've raced motocross competitively since I was 13 years old and then fell in love with mountain bikes in 2014. I turned pro September of 2015, claimed 2nd overall in the NW Cup 2016, 2017 will be a year of traveling, racing and meeting new people!
Ambassador Badge
With the stunning Rocky Mountains as my backyard, I’m always looking for the next adventure, wherever my feet can take me. Running is my passion, and the open trails (or roads) are constantly beckoning. As a quasi-Colorado native, I’m most “at home” when I’m away from home and in the beautiful outdoors.
Ambassador Badge
I'm an avid runner, gym rat, and overall fitness junkie living in Charlotte, NC. By day, I run my own graphic design business, but sometimes sitting at a desk all day can seem like I’m in time-out. So when I’m not working, I explore new ways of moving. I’ve found that my happiness lies in staying fit, challenging myself to be a better athlete, and encouraging others to live a fit life to the fullest.
Ambassador Badge
I am a twenty year veteran law enforcement officer for a large Kansas City Metropolitan agency. I also served in the United States Marine Corps for twelve years. Besides my family, my passion lies in the upland fields chasing birds and traveling across public lands throughout Kansas and the Midwest hunting open fields, walking tree lines, & bustin’ through plum thickets with an emphasis on DIY public access areas.

I love being in the mountains. Whether I'm running, climbing, hiking, or mountaineering, I'm almost always on my feet. A peakbagger at heart, last year I topped out on over 120 summits. I also ran my first ultra marathon in 2016 and I'm totally hooked and ready for more this year! I spend as many days and nights in the mountains as possible and I share my experiences with anyone I can manage to drag out there with me! A lot of people seem to think that I just do all of this so I can continue eating junk food with impunity. They might have a bit of a point.
Ambassador Badge
I am a racer and a pacer; from 5k to marathons, Ironman to Ultras, short and long, fast and slow, morning, noon, or night. If it's an adventure ~ count me in! The more dirt and vert and I'm apt to say, "Yayaaauuuus ... let's do it!" Proficient at smiling, positivity, and finding inspiration from others.
Ambassador Badge
I discovered mountain biking in 1998, and with support from wonderful family, friends and colleagues, it stuck with me through high school, college, and a seven year career in renewable energy. Since making it to the elite ranks in 2011, I've competed on six continents, from the World Cup to backyard cyclocross, chased a spot at the Olympics, met lots of amazing people, and started my own coaching business here in Bellingham, WA.

I love the freedom and adventure of exploring the world by foot, bike, and skis! Adventure travel and mountain running are my two main passions and I love inspiring others to be active outdoors through my photography!

I feel at home in the mountains and enjoy pushing past limits within their crowns. Along with my Australian Shepard Sol, I experience nature and express myself through running, biking, skiing, climbing, writing, and photography. I never take a day for granted and try to continuously remind myself that it is a blessing to be able to be outside and play on this planet.
Ambassador Badge
On the weekends you can find me adventuring the trails in the Pacific Northwest mountains.Ultra trail running has become my passion. I love the challenge, the endurance, the adventures and of course time on the trails with my running girls. When I'm not running trails, I'm in the gym strength training keeping toned and tough. I love helping others reach their fitness levels and goals and encourage others to work hard and do hard things!

My passion for life is fueled by playing in the mountains. Whether it's backpacking, hiking, kayaking, fishing, snowboarding or exploring, you know where to find me. Or not! I grew up in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee where my love of the mountains began as a child and later manifested into moving to Wyoming/Idaho as an adult. Now with the Teton Mountains as my home base my thirst for adventure is getting quenched!
