I grew up in Salt Lake City having the beautiful wasatch range in my backyard. I would hike with my family here and there and snowboard a bit in the winter. As far as outdoor activities go though, I didn’t get out very often. Definitly not compared to now! It wasn’t until moving back to Utah, after attending Georgia State University, that I really got into outdoor activities. The south was great but I knew that I wanted to be back out west and working in the outdoor industry. The month I moved back I started working at Liberty Mountain. Ever since it has been an adventure in and out of work.

Favorite outdoor areas: I love going to beaches and the mountains. This year I was lucky enough to visit 3 national parks: Grand Teton, Glacier and Grand Canyon (photos below). I also went on my first backpacking trip in the Tetons and accidentaly hiked the longest distance in my life, just a leisurely 20 MILES! I almost didn’t make it back to the campsite that day...
