At The Heart Of My Bucket List

I’m just a very average girl. I didn’t even start hiking until five years ago when I lost my sister to Melanoma cancer. I was overwhelmed with grief and sadness.

Love Art

My life had become very black and white and heavy with societal expectation. I was lost and inauthentic and that was not the life I had envisioned for myself. As hard as it was at the time, it was a pivotal moment of change. Adventure and wild frontiers were calling.
