Kristin is a transplant to Vermont, but oh so happy to be in the Green Mountain State after having lived mostly in the more crowded Philadelphia area. An avid hiker, she was first introduced to the Long Trail during an Appalachian Trail thru hike in 2013. Following even more outdoor adventures, including a Pacific Crest Trail thru hike in 2015 and a Grand Canyon thru raft in 2016, Kristin decided to leave her prior software career and focus on the trails that she loves so much. As GMC’s Membership and Communications Coordinator, she is thrilled to help protect and get more people involved with the Long Trail. Since Vermont’s great outdoors are right outside her front door, you can usually find Kristin outside adventuring, but she also enjoys reading, crafting, and live music.
