Jess spent her early life in New Hampshire’s White Mountains and in Massachusetts jogging along the Charles River in Boston. It wasn’t until moving to Portland a few years ago that her insatiable appetite for being outside came to life. She tries to cram as much trail running, biking, skiing, climbing, and being in the mountains into her days as she can while soaking up all the knowledge and inspiration this amazing community has to offer. Long days out are her jam (mostly to avoid carrying that shockingly heavy overnight backpack!) and she’s generally up for biting off more than she can chew.
