Who am I?

Good question.  Some days I’m not totally sure.  That’s part of why I write: putting words on paper–or typing them onto a screen–helps me organize my thoughts and work through any manner of identity crises to which we humans are subject.

But you came here for information, not an existential debate about who we are and why we’re here…

I’m a twenty-something woman who loves God, loves having dirty boots, loves people, and would rather spend time in the middle of the woods than in a big city.  I’m still figuring out how to combine my natural resources education with my passion for changing peoples’ lives.  Most of us nature students get into this field to avoid people, but we need you, all of you, and we can’t begin to work together if we ignore one another.

So…sometimes I’ll write about nature, more often I’ll write about life.  But what I hope, above all, is that my words will be a help to one of you, one time, for one thing in your life.  If I can make a difference in one person’s life, then it will all be worth it.

Happy trails.
