My husband and I are avid outdoors folks, who love living the Vermont life---bicycling, hiking, skiing, skijoring, kicksledding, snowshoeing,canoeing, kayaking, and camping with our rescue mutts! From May to November, I get out paddling nearly 100 days per year. Once the snow falls, I am exploring our trails and mountains on my snowshoes or cross-country skis nearly every day. I am an amateur wildlife photographer and birder, and love sharing our adventures on our "just for fun" blog and social media.

I serve as a Board Member of Friends of Green River Reservoir and the Friends of Waterbury Reservoir. I also belong to the Catamount Trail Association and the Green Mountain Club, reflecting my love of, and support of, the great trails we have in Vermont.

I have done presentations for the past few years at the New England Paddlesports Show in NH, on the topic of safe and responsible paddling with dogs and on canoe camping with dogs. I have also done a lecture on hiking with dogs, for the Green Mountain Club.

This summer will end with a flourish for us...we are heading on a cross-Canada camping and canoeing trip,with the destination of Banff National Park. It has been nearly 40 years since either of us has been to Banff, and we look forward to paddling and hiking there with our dogs.
