My name is Kate and I am originally from a pretty small town in Southern New Jersey.

A week long trip to Colorado in August of 2017 when I was 21 kickstarted my love for the mountains, outdoors, traveling, and taking photos.

By the fall of 2019 I had been to 7 countries and 2 solo trips out West. But I was craving more and desperately wanted to be a short drive away from mountains.

In March of 2020 I signed my first travel nurse contract that took me back to the place it all started- the land of the Rockies.

In my 2 years of travel nursing I lived in 5 different cities on the West Coast. I was lucky enough to have my boyfriend, Tyler, join me on all of these amazing adventures while he went back to school online.

I worked 3 days a week so the 4 days I had off we were constantly exploring and taking road trips to new destinations weekly.

We had to make the drive back to the East Coast in May of 2022 for a job opportunity for Tyler and moved to Philadelphia, PA- just a short drive from our hometowns.

But- that didn’t mean that the adventures stopped! I now work as a Per Diem RN in Philly, where my hours are very flexible for traveling so I can still do what I love.
