the Ordinary Adventurer


In 2016 I made a drastic decision to hike over 1000km the length of Israel. It was lifechanging! It reset my values and boosted my confidence. I left with a passion for conservation and a dream to inspire others to go on adventures so they too can experience the benefits.

Since then I have been on many travels and expeditions including kick scooting the length of the USA. I founded the all-female Love Her Wild community and am now a digital nomad working as a blogger, speaker and expedition leader all over the world. I'm finally living life on my terms.....all thanks to going on an adventure!
