About Becky

I love exploring the outdoors, whether it’s in my own backyard or around the world, but I hold a special place in my heart for backpacking in the Colorado high country. I’ve worked in-house for corporations, marketing firms and environmental nonprofits in Los Angeles, Denver, Fort Collins and Boulder. Today, I thrive as a freelance writer in Northern Colorado.

My biggest success? Raising two loving sons who are happy and kind human beings. My favorite thing to write about? Thru-hiking the 500-mile Colorado Trail.

If you want the nitty-gritty details of my work experience and some hard-number results, please check out my profile on LinkedIn.
 

 AUTHOR  I’m writing   Serendipity on the Trail   ,  an intimate memoir about thru-hiking the 500-mile Colorado Trail and lessons learned along the way.  The book is about running away from home at age 45, the effects of radical self-care, and how doing something selfish can be good for you and the people in your life.  I give presentations about my experience on the CT, including the practical how-to talk “Finding Yourself on the Colorado Trail” where I share photos and personal stories, what worked and what didn’t, and how to plan for a successful thru-hike.
