2013-14. Immediately following her internship at SOS, Nancy drove back to the East Coast to finish hiking the second half of the Appalachian Trail. In walking from Waynesboro, VA (the southern end of the Shenandoah National Park) to Mt. Katahdin in Baxter State Park, ME, Nancy raised $7,000 for the Alzheimer's Association. Upon completing the trail, she moved back home to be her family before moving off to graduate school in the summer for education! While at home, Nancy is working at a local outdoor education school, who shares many of the same principles of SOS (including BEETLES!).
"My time at SOS is like no other experience I have ever had. I utilize what I learned at SOS everyday. Whether it be teachable moments, or spontaneous naturalizing sessions, SOS somehow pops up in my life daily, and I would not trade that for anything."
