She lives in Asheville, North Carolina - and she has covered more than 14,000 miles of long-distance trails on six continents.

 

Jennifer recently collaborated with watercolor artist Alan Shuptrine on the coffee table book, “I Come From A Place” - paying tribute to the Appalachian Trail.

 

We invited Jennifer back to “Scenic Roots” for a conversation about her own story...
