I'm just a regular girl who loves exploring in the mountains, both in my home state of Colorado and around the world. You can usually find me trail running, mountain biking, hiking, or backpacking with my husband Jason and my sweet pup Moose. When I'm not out exploring, you can find me in the kitchen whipping up generally healthy, delicious treats!
