About Me

My name is Gabby. I’ve lived in the greater Seattle area my whole life. The city isĀ surrounded by water and greenery from all sides, in addition to the snow-capped Olympic and Cascade mountains. However, I have a day job that involves sitting at a desk the majority of the time in addition to a long commute in my car to get there–that is a lot of sitting! Considering my Master’s in Public Health, I know the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle, but the gym only goes so far in keeping me active–my mind still yearns for the new settings, thrilling views, and fresh air that hiking provides. In addition to hiking, I also enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, and paddleboarding to keep my weekends (or even weeknights in the summer) occupied. My Monday-Fridays are occupied with a day job, cooking, and Netflix.

I love trying new things and new gear. I own far too many pint glasses and probably qualify as a major tegestologist–someone who collects beer coasters. I love football (go Seahawks and Go Buckeyes!) soccer (world cup and MLS Sounders) and rooting on the Mariners. Besides beer, I have major weaknesses for pasta and macarons. I live in Seattle with my ever-growing plant family.
