Favorite Outdoor Activity: I love hiking the most but whether I am exploring the North Georgia Mountains or the South Georgia Beaches. I love being surrounded by nature.
Favorite Outdoor Memory: : I was on a oceanography field trip a few years ago, one night after dark my teacher took us out on the boat about a mile or two from shore so we could see the beautiful bright green bio-luminescence in the water. It was so cool to see the bio-luminescence light up as I swam around in the water. I felt a little bit like Tinker Bell.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Mayfield Dairy’s Extreme Moose Tracks because the more chocolate the better!
Secret or hidden talent: Relief printmaking
Ideal temperature: 70 Degrees

Favorite Outdoor Activity: Camping, paddle boarding, hiking, skiing… there’s no way I could choose just ONE!
Favorite Outdoor Memory: : These questions are super unfair, it’s so hard to narrow down so many amazing times!  Let’s go with taking the kids on their first float on the lower Hooch last year at ages 3 and 6.  All four of us piled into our raft (his name is Totes McFloats) and we set off on a 5 mile stretch that was full of hysterical moments.  They loved every second of it and have become impressive river rats, not unlike like their mom and dad!

Spirit Animal: A honey badger.  Most definitely a honey badger.
Most interesting hobby: Primitive fire-making is a current fav–I’m sort of obsessed with my bow drill.  I also love target practice with my slingshot, everything outdoor related, art, and live music.  It’s almost like my hobby is collecting hobbies.
Ideal temperature: 69*F with very low to no humidity…basically, the incredible semi-arid climate of Fort Collins, Colorado in October.  I love being able to layer up to be prepared for sunshine and snow all in the same day!
