We are all a collection of moments, experiences, emotions, and decisions. We are the smiles, laughs, grimaces, aches, pains, and changes we choose to enact and embrace. Who is Jill? A writer, a pragmatic dreamer, an interminable explorer looking for a way to make seasonal life sustainable and this world a better place. Jill is a mountain guide by summer & jack-of-all-trades (and binge traveler) by winter. She believes that meals are best cooked together, vivacity is contagious, everyone has something to teach, and adventures are best when shared. Raised near the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Jill calls the mountainous landscape of Western Montana her home in between climbing, skiing, backpacking, rafting and canyoneering trips.
