Where do you live: Chattanooga, TN

What is the title of your session?   Healing Ourselves & the Earth: Ecotherapy as Practice


What is your favorite part about being outdoors? The peace and stillness that I find there; it keeps me grounded in my very stressful 8-5 job


Do you have a favorite hike or adventure?  I love the North Carolina side of the Smokies around Bryson City -- miles and miles of trails and few people!

What is your never-leave-home-without piece of gear?  My camera and/or journal

What encouragement would you give to a woman that is new to the outdoors or nervous about getting out there? 
Nature has a way of inviting us in if we let ourselves be open; start with small steps like sitting by a river, enjoying the sun and breeze during a work break, or listening to the rain.  Once your brain focuses on these nature-based experiences, the rest of your body and soul will follow!

Any other thoughts? Women spend much of their energy investing in others in their lives; nature provides a way for us to invest in ourselves and find peace and new energy for life.

Do you have a website, social media links or blogs that you would like to share? and look for me on Instagram!

Also, come join me in my hiking club Women on the Trail!!
