Welcome Explorers- So far I have worked nine seasons with the National Park Service. My first season was at Assateague Island National Seashore in Maryland (2011). The summer of 2012 and the summer of 2013 I worked at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.
In the summer of 2014 and 2015 I worked in Yellowstone National Park,  and I went back to Mesa Verde National Park in between the summers of Yellowstone (winter 2014-2015 and winter 2015-2016).

My eighth season with the National Park Service was the summer of 2016, in Alaska, in Katmai National Park and Preserve. I completed my ninth season at Mesa Verde National Park in the summer of 2017. My tenth season was at Shenandoah National Park this last summer (2018).

I hope to continually update this blog as I travel through my National Park Service journey, meeting new people, going on new adventures, and learning life lessons on the way.

I write about many different topics ranging from travel experiences through different parks and trails, to environmental news that I think are important. As well as my sweet-tooth that leads to some baking recipes.
