Occupation: Entrepreneur – company name is Lancio Media where I do a few different things – blogging, freelance writing, web development, marketing and I also work part-time 1 or 2 days a week as a home health care oncology nurse.

Favorite place to hike: West Virginia

What’s one book you’d recommend to a friend and why: I recently finished the book “Falling Together” by Donna Wilk Cardillo, RN. It’s about how she found balance, joy and meaningful change in her life when everything around her was falling apart. I’ve known Donna online for many years but had no idea her back story. She writes about the many challenges she faced and lessons learned along the way. It inspired and motivated me to make a few changes in my own life, like taking better care of me. I still refer back to the book from time to time when I’m feeling out of sorts or a little lost because of the great advice she gives and it’s for anyone struggling in life.

What’s your favorite thing to cook for dinner: I love my slow cooker because it’s a one dish meal and I can walk away from it for hours. I do love making lasagna in my slow cooker, it’s sooo good.

What’s your favorite quote: “The mountains are calling, I must go” – John Muir. Sometimes I add my own words to this – “the woods are calling I must walk” or “My bed is calling I must sleep now” 😉

If you could hike with anyone, dead or alive who would be and why: I would love to hike with Madonna; she is someone I’ve admired forever! Would love to pick her brain about everything and just kick back, having fun, just being 2 bad ass girls in the woods.

What the one piece of gear that always has a place in your backpack: I always have my hiking stick. It helps with balance, and it can be used as a weapon if I have to defend myself from animal or human. Also a roll of toilet paper, never leave home without it.

If you could drop what you’re doing right now and had unlimited funds what’s the one place you’d go hiking: I’d go to Idaho. My first trip out west was to Idaho and it was so beautiful, I’ve been dying to go back. In fact we are planning our 20th wedding anniversary in 2 years, to the Redfish Lodge in Stanley, ID. I can’t wait!
