About your host

I work part-time as an occupational therapist, which affords me plenty of time to explore the remote wilderness on everything from short day hikes to eight-day primitive overnight trips.

Together the two wetland areas cover more than two million acres of coastal mangroves and sawgrass marshes that are home to leatherback turtles, panthers, alligators, and manatees.
