From a young age, Birdie experienced outdoor sports such as skiing and white water rafting. She grew up surrounded by nature and animals, which is why she is most inspired by Jane Goodall.
Her first outdoor memory was swimming in the beautiful lakes and rivers near her hometown. She is a powerhouse when it comes to paddling, and loves a good challenge. When she joined the Desert Adventure team, she couldn't wait to share her love of nature with others and see what new places she could find in the Nevada desert.
