Call Me Quack

Hi! I'm your guide to Soul Rooted Adventures and you can call me Quack. My first name is Ashley but I prefer Quack, I know it sounds weird but it's a long story, just trust me, its cool.

I would describe myself as a ferocious feminist with an insatiable urge for wanderlust. I get outdoors quite often and I have learned a lot through my adventures. I have a degree in environmental studies and work as an environmental planner. Essentially, my life revolves around learning from and about nature. I can't wait to take you along with me. 

The Blog

My hope is that the information provided in this blog will inspire and empower other women out there that may have the same urge as me for exploration but maybe don't know where to go or how to backpack, especially on their own. So my plan is to fill this blog with the all the little nature wisdom nuggets I have learned along the way, whether it be a cool trail, badass adventure skills, solo exploration tips, mindful hiking techniques, or just information about the outside world that I find cool and interesting. My hope is you find the information you need in this blog that gives you that little nudge you need to start exploring.
