I have been a nurse for nearly six years and have absolutely loved it. I have felt fulfilled, challenged, had a ton of fun, and have worked with some of the smartest, kindest, most wonderful people I have ever met, but I need a break. I'm a bit worn out and sometimes its hard to remain caring and compassionate. I want to do something different for a season so I can feel refreshed and ready to be a nurse again. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and am excited to attempt something that is really hard but also very simple. Walk from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. 2650 miles of living simply, hiking all day, and enjoying the natural beauty of the wilderness. I hope to challenge myself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to see what I'm capable of. I want to accomplish something difficult simply for the satisfaction of doing so. I look forward to sharing my thoughts, perspective, and discoveries along my journey.
