Katie Klos is an Explorer Chick Guide whose love for the outdoors started as a child in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania. Drawn to the simplicity the outdoors had to offer she became an Adventure Guide at the University of South Florida where she got certified as a Wilderness First Responder and led backpacking trips throughout the United States and abroad. After college she thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, claiming that the 2,000-mile trek was more of a “spiritual journey” above all else. Exploring the outdoors has given Katie confidence, and a deep sense of connection to her body, peers, and the natural world around her. One of her goals is to help others experience all the gifts the outdoors has given her.
She currently resides in New Orleans working in the film industry, and on receiving her 200-Hour Yoga Instructor Certification. She enjoys spending her winters snowboarding with her family in Colorado, and is planning her next great adventure: Learning how to surf!Instagram Profile
