I have always had a connection to the outdoors. There is something about it that really speaks to my soul. 9 years ago I was injured, and I have since then worked to find ways to do all the things I love outdoors adaptively. It has been a heck of adventure finding mountains to summit, and enjoy the long journey/hike, kayaking all over lakes and oceans, cycling around on my hand cycle and (my personal favorite) re learning how to ski and becoming the best mono skier I can. Volunteering outdoors to help people of all abilities is another passion. No mountain is ever too short or too tall, no trail to long or windy, and no challenge too great!
