One of my favorite sayings is "life begins at the end of your comfort zone." So when a friend suggested I travel to a foreign land with a bunch of strangers, I knew I had to do it! My first U30X trip was to Iceland in 2016, and I have since explored Costa Rica and hiked the Inca Trail in Peru. Every trip was completely unique, but they all managed to push me beyond my limits (hello: zip-lining high above a rainforest canopy and summiting a 13,800ft peak!). I've also met some amazing individuals (both travelers and staff) and have made lasting friendships. My goal as community manager is to share my experience and encourage others to take a leap and do something they're scared of!
Besides a traveler and adventure seeker, I am also an engineer, runner/yogi, Harry Potter fan, popcorn lover, and momma to a very sweet pup.
