History: Indie grew up in a big city near a nature preserve, making her a city kid with a nature-loving heart. Indie lived and worked in two different places in high school, constantly moving back and forth between the two. This lifestyle amplified her curiosity and boosted her interest for independent meandering and thus, Indie was born! Ever since, she has been exploring, seeing as much of the world and meeting as many of its people as possible. She has a love for people and what makes them unique, and this paired with her passion for the outdoors led her to go on and earn degrees in Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education and Elementary Education at Brevard College. Here, Indie fell in love with boating, climbing, and backpacking!
After College, Indie moved to the Outer Banks,the islands off the coast of North Carolina, where she worked for a sea kayaking company, first as a guide, then as the manager. Next she moved to the Catskill Mountains in New York and took a job leading team building and environmental education with groups of teenagers. During the summers she spent her time leading teen wilderness trips in the United States, Mexico, and Australia. She then spent a year working and traveling in New Zealand, Lao PDR, Indonesia, and Mongolia!
