I grew up in Frederick and my love for the outdoors grew from hiking and camping in the Catoctin Mountains. I’ve been lucky to have spent years in California, Vermont, and the Adirondacks where hiking, skiing, and cycling have been a big part of my life. My career in Specialty Outdoor Retail encompasses more than 20 years….working at an outdoor store much like The Trail House in Burlington, VT, traveling the Mid Atlantic and New England as a Sales Rep, and of course here at The Trail House where we’ve served the Frederick community for more than 30 years

Yep, I still work here! (And we are very happy that she does!!)
