She is a recipient of more than a dozen North American Travel Journalists Association awards including accolades for “Wild & Broken: A First SUP Descent of Utah’s Escalante River,” an essay, featured in SUP Magazine and Men’s Journal, about her inaugural 100-mile paddle down the rigorous, remote waterway with four friends.
