This free event will also host other nonprofits and businesses that encourage outdoor activities.
Luana is an Executive Board Member at the Bay Area Ridge Trail. She has been a trail runner for over two decades and loves exploring new trails. In 2016, she circumnavigated the entire Ridge Trail in less than a year. Luana gives back to the trail community through participating in the East Bay Regional Park District’s Multicultural Advisory Committee along with building trails with Volunteers for Outdoor California. Furthermore, Luana also spends time at aid booths for trail races.
Janel was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and graduated from the University of Southern California. As well as being a writer, she is also a long-distance hiker. In 2018, she hiked the Pacific Crest Trail and consequently raised funds for three women-run nonprofit organizations. She encourages hikers to find ways to “reconnect to themselves and to the planet.” She has done this by participating in a WWOOF Program in Australia and in addition, works with social media marketing, website development, and content creation that allows her to harness the power of storytelling for social good.
Cori is the Program Director at GirlVentures — a Bay Area nonprofit that inspires girls to lead through outdoor adventure, inner discovery and collective action. As a member of the GirlVentures team, she is able to help dismantle some of the barriers that prevent many groups from enjoying natural spaces. Cori has been a wilderness guide, educator and adventurer since 1999! She works with youth and adults to experience more confidence and freedom in themselves through backpacking, climbing, and kayaking. She once added up all her nights in the woods and the total equaled about 3 years. She is an avid solo hiker, desert lover, and a deep believer in the healing and transformative effects of the natural world.
Sasha is the founder of Trail Mavens, which empowers women to be the fire-starters, the tent-pitchers, and the map-readers. Trail Mavens seeks to create opportunities for adventure, leadership, and starry-night campfire conversation in the great outdoors. She feels like the best version of herself when she is backpacking, camping, or hiking. Her big “Ah-Ha!” moment came in 2013 when she realized she’d never combined two of her favorite things—communities of strong women and nature—and consequently, the idea for Trail Mavens was born.
