Girl Camper Guide - South Dakota

Growing up in Nebraska, my camping consisted of sleeping in a musty Roy Rogers canvas tent in our backyard and being envious of my BFF’s family who left on the weekends in their Winnebago motorhome.

Oh how I wanted to go with them!  While we weren’t a camping family, we were an outdoor family and spent a lot of time on the banks of the Missouri River or lake fishing in Minnesota.

I like to borrow a tag line Mike Rowe uses to describe myself….I have a curious mind with a short attention span.  I’ve been a golf pro, a ski instructor, a PADI divemaster, an EMT, a search & rescue volunteer, a 20+ year Junior League member, an avid volunteer for breast cancer causes (raising over $1 million…so far), a pilot, and a lawyer.  Currently I co-own a construction company in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband which allows me to fix up and glamp campers on the side.

I bought my first camper in 2015 and became friends with Girl Camper Guide Ginny McKinney at a camping event.  She was so inspiring, kind and fun, I knew I had found my new tribe.  Besides camping, I love all things outdoors 24/7…365 days a year.  I’m an avid hiker, biker (both bicycle and motorcycle), fisher, diver, kayaker, cast iron cook, geocacher, off road adventurer, and international traveler.  I am always up for a good time and a new adventure.

I LOVE planning events, trying out the latest gear and most of all, making new girlfriends.  I can’t wait to share with you all the wonderful things there are to see and do here in my area as your Girl Camper Guide in of South Dakota & Wyoming.  😊
