hey, I'm steph!
First and foremost, I am a follower of Jesus - my relationship with Him is the center of my life, and He has given me the courage to pursue this crazy dream of mine! For the last 3 years, I've been working as a web designer & digital creative in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I LOVE my work family, but to be honest, I'm not sure that web design is what I want to do moving forward. A quarter-life crisis seems appropriate.
I was born in Washington state, but my family moved to Indiana when I was really young, and I have always wanted to get back over to the west coast and take in the beautiful lands that are a part of this country.
Almost two years ago, I saw a video on Youtube from a PCT thru-hiker that piqued my interest. I then binge-watched my way through a video series from a girl my age who hiked the trail and had a realization - I want to do this... and I think I can.
So here we are.
