Hi! I’m Evelyn. It’s nice to meet you!
Outdoor travel is one of my true passions. For much of my career, I worked in the environmental education and wildlife conservation fields. This led me to live in and explore some incredible places including the Dominican Republic, the Cayman Islands, and Northern California. I love to explore through hiking. To be surrounded by nature and take in the sights and sounds of the area.
Planning trips is my favorite hobby after actually traveling. I love seeking out the unique experiences that embody a location. Whale watching in Samana Bay, Dominican Republic, and staying in a Yurt with an epic canyon view in Utah are two recent highlights. If I’m visiting somewhere I have been before, I always try something new, such as a trail I’ve never tried, to get a different perspective. My friends and family have come to rely on me for these special insights and experiences during our trips together. Now, you can too…
