I have lived in Colorado Springs since 2010, and really enjoy hiking! I became active with Hike it Baby in April 2016 and fell in love with carrier hikes. I became a branch ambassador for the Colorado Springs branch in February 2018.  I now help with the national team with localized support and the LEAP program.  I currently host and enjoy toddler led and stroller hikes.
