Originally from Michigan, I currently call the beautiful state of Washington my home. My love for the outdoors began at a young age spending summers in the Adirondacks with my family and ultimately led me to thru hike the Pacific Crest Trail in 2017. This hike illuminated the importance of our public lands. Since then, I have been developing my passion for promoting community health through protecting, restoring and connecting with our natural environment. I am thrilled for the chance to continue to do so by becoming a backcountry wilderness ranger this summer.
