Katie is an Explorer Chick Guide, with a passion for adventure in…well ANYWHERE! Katie was born in Georgia, but has lived in multiple states and overseas before making her way to her current home in Arizona. She graduated from Auburn University in 2009. In her former life she was a Project Coordinator for a company in luxury real estate before deciding to hang up her “corporate hat” to earn her NOLS Wilderness First Responder Certification and to get lost outside for a bit.
Katie has guided and completed hundreds of miles of backpacking in the Grand Canyon and Sedona. Her favorite places to play include Yellowstone, Peru, and Belize, Dominican Republic and Iceland…all of which she has guided exclusively with Explorer Chick. Katie enjoys meeting new people, backpacking, hiking, laughing until she cries, pizza, party (rave) spin class, bubble baths and is always down for a last-minute/spontaneous adventure.Instagram Profile
