Hi, I’m Laura!
I started Outdoor Beginner in 2014 to provide beginner-friendly guidance to other people exploring the outdoors for the first time. I’m passionate about helping people feel welcome in whatever outdoor activity they choose.
I write free and low-cost guides for camping, hiking, and other adventures. In 2021, I became a UESCA-certified running coach to help more people get started running.
