1 yr Everest Base Camp Anniversary

I have mixed emotions today. One of the greatest accomplishments of my life but also a very painful day. My travel obsession has euphoric highs and crushing lows. A sweet refuge for the soul as I reminisce.

I have only shared this video with seven people to date – my Titusville Y leadership team & parents. It is very raw and unlike me to show vulnerability, but I figured it was time to share this moment.

This was one of my biggest lessons in rising up during adversity and humbling myself to forces out of my control. Every obstacle can be overcome with an extra abundance of persistence and an unwavering heart.

“Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think. More talented than you know. And capable of more than you can imagine.” – Roy T Bennett

Love adventure travel, work hard & play hard, happy in both extremes - relaxing on a remote beach or rappelling down cliffs, take joy in simple things, love being on & near the water, visited 55 countries & 47 states so far in this crazy beautiful life! Goals by my 50th birthday - 50 states. 75 countries. 50 national parks. Be in Antarctica on my big day.
