Hey there! Let me share the story of how Hike Like A Woman came to be. It all started back in 2014 when I had a new baby and a toddler, and was eager to take my young children out on adventures. However, I couldn't find any useful resources on how to hike, camp, ski, snowshoe, and explore with my little ones. Despite the abundance of parenting books available in bookstores, I couldn't find anything that catered to adventurous families like mine.

That's when I decided to take matters into my own hands and started Hike Like A Woman. My goal was to share what I was learning with my own children with other like-minded parents. I even started a local hiking group, the Little Laramie Hikers, to meet other moms who were as passionate about the outdoors as I was.

Over the years, Hike Like A Woman grew into something much bigger than I could have ever imagined. From ambassador blog contributors to volunteer hiking group leaders, online classes, challenges, workshops, merchandise sales, a podcast, a digital magazine, and an adventure book club, our community flourished in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

But as much as I loved Hike Like A Woman, it became too difficult to juggle my career as an outdoor retailer, guide, and ski instructor. After a few rocky years of trying to manage everything, I eventually had to step away. However, our community continued to thrive even when I wasn't actively running it. But, after a breast cancer diagnosis, I was overwhelmed with support, love and encouragement from our Hike Like A Woman community. I realized that I needed to take Hike Like A Woman to our roots - focusing on community.

Nowadays, Hike Like A Woman has two main objectives: providing outdoor education and adventure travel for outdoorsy women. 

Here's to hiking adventures, big and small.
