I help individuals who have experienced loss and/or brokenness, use hiking and the wilderness in order to find healing, wholeness, and joy.
I am a Loss Momma, a published writer, and someone who connects very deeply with nature. I feel passionately that there is power in love, kindness, and gratitude.
