Outdoors for All is a community of volunteers, participants, staff and supporters. We want to bring these communities together by sharing experiences, thoughts and faces!

1. Where are you from and what brought you here?

Born in New Orleans, but grew up north of Houston, Texas. Before moving to Seattle, I spent many years living a seasonal lifestyle, working and volunteering in several different states and one other country. After getting married, my husband (Ryan) and I decided on a very important goal: 1 city, 1 job, and 1 place of residence for at least a year (and location must include accessible outdoor adventures). We narrowed it down to moving to Seattle or Denver. Seattle presented the first employment opportunity, and now having lived here since 2014, we are pretty sold on staying indefinitely. Sorry Colorado.

2. How did you hear about Outdoors for All?

When we first moved to Seattle, Ryan and I were looking to build community through the outdoors. We started to volunteer with various nonprofits to meet people in the city, including Outdoors for All.

3. What made you want to get involved with Outdoors for All?

The incredible community that is dedicated to making the outdoors accessible to all.

4. What’s been your favorite experience with Outdoors for All so far?

Going on a cycling day in Magnuson Park with Day Camps. We played the silliest game of “red light, green light” in the park after lunch, which created a chain reaction of laughter and smiles.

5. If you were telling a stranger about Outdoors for All, what would be the first thing you would want to say?

Being a part of this community is a humbling experience. If you share a passion for the outdoors and helping others, this is a key organization to get involved with.

Oh, and come volunteer with us! 🙂
