Naomi - Anchorage, Ak.

I grew up in Anchorage, AK. My outdoorsy life style started very young. I started camping when I was about one years old and started back packing when I was 6 years old. As I grew up I fell in love with many outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, running and skiing. As a high schooler I became a competitive nordic skier, making team Alaska for both Junior Nations and Arctic Winter Games. I placed 3rd at the State championships here in Alaska my senior year in 2016. I went on to ski in college but due to injury I retired and now am excited to start long distance backpacking and hiking as well as becoming a ski coach for young kids. I love coaching and would love to coach full time but first I am off to hike Appalachian Trail, and will hopefully do more long trails one day.
