Trails for everyone, forever


Seattle, WA

WTA Member

Katie is a native Washingtonian, who grew up hiking and skiing the Central and Southern Cascades with her family, friends, and Venture Crew. While you can take a girl out of the mountains, you can’t take the mountains out of a girl! After spending three years living in Boston, coming back to the Pacific Northwest was imperative for this adventure-seeker. Katie is now compensating for her time away by making the outdoors a priority in her life, which also helps keep the stresses of graduate school at bay. Katie contributes to the WTA as a trip reporter and hiking guide correspondent in order to share the great outdoors and to encourage others to respect and protect it as well. Her boots are on a trail almost every weekend, so keep an eye out for her latest updates and forays in photography!
