Get to know our ambassadors
Meet our current ambassadors. They not only adventure themselves, but also take the time to voluntarily organize and lead us on adventures! Make sure to give them a huge thank you next time you see them out there.
Hello Female Adventurers,
It is a privilege to be a part of this dynamic group and meet so many fabulous women. I am a big believer in adventures, whether they are physical, social, cultural, or educational.
I have lived in Arizona for 34 years and loved every minute of my time here. (Originally from Iowa, I am still a huge Iowa Hawkeye football fan, though.) My family consists of my husband, daughter (24) and son (22) along with two rescue dogs and three rescue cats! I love all animals and believe animals come into our lives to teach us lessons. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, skiing, biking, good coffee, and wine tasting. My past adventures have included kayaking in Alaska, swimming from Alcatraz to San Francisco Bay, rafting the salt river, and hiking to Havasupai.
I currently work for an Orthotics/Prosthetics company and travel a lot to provide education and training to our customers. This is a perfect job for me as our company motto is “Life without Limitations.” So true.
My goal is to surround myself with positive people who like to have fun. There are so many beautiful places in our state and I want to explore them all. I have an Arizona bucket list of places and events and I look forward to sharing these with Women on Adventures. I want to live life with no regrets and develop wonderful friendships along the way. Ready, set, GO!
Allison, San Diego
Hey there fellow Women on Adventures enthusiasts!!
I’m Allison and come to you from sunny San Diego! My husband and I moved here just a year and a half ago from Phoenix. Since moving, we bought a house and had a baby. We haven’t met too many people around town, so now that I am not pregnant, I am ready to get out and have some fun. Women on Adventures sounded like the perfect fit as a group to start here in San Diego as there is SO MUCH to do and see! Plus, it wouldn’t hurt for me to meet some new ladies with similar interests to my own.
I’ve always thought I was somewhat adventurous. I’ve traveled, done my share of hiking, ran a few marathons, but I haven’t really pushed myself past my comfort zone. I drive by a sky diving place a few times a week and always see the jumpers falling from the sky. At this point I keep saying out loud that I don’t want to do it, but deep down, I think I really want to. I’d like to get a few other adventures under our belts first, but my hope is that in this group there are lots of women who support one another and will help us all to get out of our comfort zones every so often (and eventually fall from the sky)!
When I receive a Title Nine catalog in the mail, I always think that I want to be one of those women who is out there: rock climbing, surfing, SUP, snorkeling, scuba diving, etc. The women in the flyers seem to be having so much fun with these amazing hobbies. WoA is here to help build these hobbies and having fun, and I’m very excited to be the point person here in San Diego!
Vicky, Lawrence, KS
Hello from LFK! I met the group’s founder about 15 years ago when we worked together in an outsourcing group we created for Stay @ Home Moms. It was a forward thinking idea to create a way to keep our skills sharp & earn money for our families while raising our children. Jenny, yet again, has come up with another great idea with this group of Women on Adventures!
My kids are now college-aged (one is even engaged to be married) and my husband travels for work a lot. At one time, I had a busy cake decorating business but, as I have been reducing my exposure to sugar over the last couple of years, I stopped doing that and have been searching for something else ever since. Over the last 6 months, I caught sight of Jenny’s posts regarding what she was doing in Phoenix with WoA and noticed the growing interest. It certainly grabbed my attention too!
I love the idea of looking at life as an adventure and not just the physical aspects of exploring new places and being active, but also the spiritual and potential reflective part of it. With the changing of seasons both literally and figuratively (empty nest syndrome included) I have come to the point where life has come full circle and now is the time to be able to pursue new things I always had an excuse not to do. Carpe Diem? You betchya.
I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, art of any form, cooking, music, history, reading, and exploring my surroundings. I’ve been married for 26 years to the love of my life and our kids are 21 & 19. We also have 3 other (4-legged) children – 2 dogs and a cat. I’m an avid animal lover & protector; feel most at ease when connecting with nature – whether it be roaming around Clinton lake or sitting in my backyard listening to the birds. Still cultivating my green thumb, but eager to learn more. I, reluctantly, commute 45 mins to/from work and hope than one day that can be eliminated to free up time for more adventures.
Lawrence, Kansas is quite an active town and people around here tend to be more open to adventure than maybe some other places in our state. I figured what better place to start a new WoA group than in Lawrence?
Become an Ambassador
We are always looking for motivated women. If you want to build a strong adventure community and empower women in your area, let's chat.
Many people have asked about how to start an outpost or become an ambassador. At this time I'm not establishing any new outposts but will in the future. Here are the requirements for being an ambassador.
- Inclusion, WoA is an inclusive group. Everyone who is ready for adventures is welcome to join us. We welcome all women!
- Planner, If you love to plan fun adventures for your friends or family, you are probably right for this.
- Consistent, you show up every time. No flaky people please.
We know you will love this job because it's not a job, it's an adventure. You don't have to be an expert in adventure. Part of the fun is learning along with everyone else.
