How we work:

Join the lady crew!

We are a membership-based hiking group that meets IRL in different spots through the country and online to share resources, tips, tricks and brands we love.

About the Crew

#LadyHikers are average ladies just trying to add some nature back into our lives. We tend to range in age from 30 - 45+ but have followers and friends on either side of the aisle. Really anyone is welcome but we’re going to talk about jobs, mansplainers, periods and strange body happenings. We also tend to fight for equality, protection and conservation of all peoples and natures. If you’re not into progressing as a whole over regressing on basic human rights, this probably is not the group for you.

We tend to be working professionals, small business owners, retail workers and entrepreneurs. Some of us have children but many do not. Some of us have thick thighs, carbo-load and exercise 1 - 5 days a week, if we can fit it in the schedule. Some of us are vegans, a lot are veggie besties and some us still eat meat. But we take a healthier approach to most things. We LOVE the environment.  

field notes

One of the fabulous perks of being part of #LadyHikers is our super fun field notebook. Each month #LadyHikers get a sticker and notecard to place in their notebook, scrapbook, bullet journal or super awesome #LadyHikers notebook.

History

In 2017, I lost my job. I’ll tell you all the juicy details if you drop me a line but long story short: a new dude came in, answered my questions/emails, spoke over me at meetings and took credit for my work, so I pushed back - HARD! I lost my job. So…I started freelancing and hustled and built and dreamed and then created Checkmark Creative. In 2018, there was no need to live on the East Coast, in Washington, D.C., any longer. I packed my momentos and couldn’t-leave-behinds of the past 8 years and traded on coast for the other. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m not a crazy workout person, I’ve struggled with my weight over the years and I’ve most def judged myself against someone else solely on their more attractiveness than mine. But not here, not when I’ve got my music going and my heart pumping and my legs aching, not when I’m just outside.

I’m a sucker for branding, great stickers, cute colors and to-dos and rewards - this is my literal dream team! I hope you enjoy this little magic spot of nature IRL as much as I do!
