I am a Minnesota-raised Badger who loves new places, adrenaline rushes, cheese curds and all things fitness (the fitness balances out the cheese curd intake).
I graduated in May 2014 from the University of Wisconsin, Madison (named the Nation’s Best College Town) and realized I was not meant for life in a cube after my first corporate job. So, I boxed up my apartment, bought a tent, and enrolled in a training program to be a whitewater raft guide in Colorado.
**A year after writing the above, I can safely say that my move has taken me to wonderful places! I fell in love with the river and with a crazy rafter over the summer and spent the winter bar tending in the Caribbean. Now, I am happily back in Buena Vista, CO to raft a second season on the Arkansas River! Cheers to taking risks 🙂
