My years leading expeditions in the backcountry made me a better event planner.

My love for event production began in the most unlikely of places: the middle of the woods. After college, I promptly packed up and thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, only to return to earn a master’s degree in experiential adventure education (yes, I am literally a master of adventure).
