I lived in the Chicago area for the first 49 years of my life. Since I was very young, I always wanted to move to “the mountains.” After losing everything I had to a bad economy, back surgery, breast cancer and addiction, I made the choice to finally heed the call. I knew it was a life saving decision. I have hiked in Southern Utah every day for the past two years and have made a full recovery. Nature has saved my life, I am committed to conservancy in return.
