At home, she was a single mom to four busy and amazing kids. In a blink, they launched and she faced a quiet, empty home and another decade until retirement.
She sold the farm and embarked on a solo journey into the American wilderness, traveling in a tiny, but fierce, offroad teardrop trailer pulled by a Subaru Outback.
Today she spotlights the beauty of life in nature, hoping to inspire you to passionately live every phase of your own authentic life.
