She enjoys snorkeling, paddleboarding, camping, boating, fishing, and most any other activity that gets her outside and leaves her dirty and covered in bug bites. Like any true outdoorswoman, she won’t be revealing her favorite waterways or campsites, but wishes you the best of luck exploring and finding your own this summer.
