Originally from northern Virginia, Sara spent summers hiking around the U.S. east coast with her family. Her love of the outdoors is rooted in her childhood, but she didn’t pursue outdoor adventure on her own until college.
Sara spent her college career at West Virginia University as a trip leader for her university’s outdoor orientation program, leading students on backpacking, kayaking, and canoeing trips across West Virginia. She also worked as an instructor for an outdoor adventure company leading 13 to 18 year olds on outdoor trips throughout the Pacific Northwest region of North America.
When she’s not studying, you can find Sara exploring the trails, rivers, and slopes of West Virginia.
