    As a Native Vermonter I was born to love the outdoors. I’m blessed to share the natural wonders of Vermont with my adrenaline junky family. My time is consumed by chasing the adventures waiting around every bend. My passions are snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking and yoga, not in any particular order. I also teach yoga in my spare time so that there’s a little balance to my crazy.

    global sourcing turtle

    In the Winter, I try to disappear into the Notch as often as possible… In the Summer, working around & on my house is probably the right answer, but I’ve been known to sneak in some mountain biking as well. Otherwise I am trying to wear out my chocolate lab Maceo, as a tired dog is a happy owner.
