Would you be willing to MEET & GREET or LEAD a hike?

It probably wouldn't be a good idea for me to lead any hikes, as I have no directional sense ;)

Where are some places you have hiked?

Sedona, Squaw Peak, Mormon Trail, South Mountain, North Mountain, Fossil Springs, various other places around the Phoenix area.

What is your favorite trail?

Fossil Springs (backpacking in and staying overnight). I've mostly hiked in the Squaw Peak/Dreamy Draw area primarily out of convenience, although I like to head to the cooler areas of Arizona during the summer.

Is there a trail you would enjoy hiking with the group?

I wouldn't mind hiking Camelback since I've never done that before.

Do you have a particular hiking goal?

I would like to eventually move to more difficult hikes like the Grand Canyon or Havasupai.


I'm a nurse practitioner. I enjoy hiking, gardening, and baking. I love comedies. I own two ferrets, a pit bull, and an old English bulldog. I like folk, classic rock, and dance music.
