What we're about

"Don't just survive… Live and Thrive!” 

I use this slogan to motivate myself but my deeper desire is to help others Live and Thrive regardless of what’s happening in their lives.

My business, Live and Thrive, was created in 2003 and is centered around being active with others through outdoor recreation. The combination of connecting with others in an outdoor environment has long lasting results. Some online classes or meetings are also offered indoors through Zoom.

Whether you love walking, hiking, kayaking, bike riding, stand up paddling, gardening, bike riding, or anything else, we’ll help you discover new outdoor adventure friends through our meetup groups.

There is always strength and safety in numbers. As you accumulate more outdoor adventure friends it becomes much easier to achieve your goals. 

Being active outdoors while being supported and surrounded by so many kind, caring, friendly, respectful, and encouraging people of all ages is the BEST! That's what you'll find in our group.

Without that constant support, it can feel like a long, lonely, difficult, uphill battle which most of us can relate to in one way or another.

PEOPLE are what I’m passionate about! I love doing things with people, supporting people, and helping people.

I’ve been on the receiving end. Many kind people have been there for me throughout my life when I needed help the most.

I am “people rich” and have many connections, ideas and resources that I’m eager to share with you!

Connecting with people who have different backgrounds, cultures, talents and abilities is an awesome thing.

Creating and organizing events, meetings, adventure trips, classes, outings and get togethers that bring my members together, online or in person, is what I love to do and have been doing for 20 years!

I extend a warm welcome to you and thank you for joining us!
