Born and raised in Maryland from an active family. We all loved sports- soccer, running, skiing and boating. Five years ago, I took a chance and moved out west to pursue a journalism degree at Arizona State University. I adopted an injured dog that I found in the desert. I totally fell in love with hiking and being outdoors with my pup! The weather here is perfect for hiking and camping for over half of the year. What can top the gorgeous mountains that surround Arizona? Well, take a look, it's me.
