we all start somewhere

The mountains are for EVERY-BODY.

Starting a new hobby can be intimidating, especially involving physical activity and nature. I strive to provide resources and tips to make your hiking journey as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Whether you’re looking to tackle an easy trail or venture into more challenging terrain, I can offer advice on gear, safety, and navigation to help you feel confident and prepared. I also aim to foster a welcoming community where you can connect with other hikers, share your experiences, and learn from each other. From Body Positivity to LGBTQIA+, you’ve got a friend in me.

So, don’t let your inexperience hold you back from experiencing the beauty and serenity of nature. Let me help you take those first steps toward a rewarding and fulfilling hiking adventure.

I now offer guided tours for groups of one to three people as a New York State Guide #9092! Let’s connect, find out where your baseline is, and slowly move into the mountains you have been waiting for! I specialize in guiding new hikers, slower hiking, and lower-elevation hikes.
