The outdoors are my home.  I feel more at home wondering in the woods than I do walking down a city street.  While sports such as biking, skiing, climbing, surfing, etc. are my modes of fun in the outdoors and gravity is my buddy, just walking in the forest can reset my happy button.  I grew up at the foot of Mt Shasta and now live in Durango Colorado with my husband and my two sons.  I’m looking forward to interacting, discovering, exploring and challenging myself in the outdoors with First Descents and its family.  Forgive me now if I point out forest fairies in the middle of crazy hard climb, foam mermaids in the middle of a wave while surfing or just stop to look at the lines in the river for a moment.  Also, a little piece of insider info:  I’m afraid of heights while climbing and big waves when surfing.  With that said, the outdoors and adventure are a big part of my life and I can’t wait to share that with FD peeps!
