Meet the Ambassadors
Jen Potts - Illinois
My name is Jen, I am 33 and come from Midwestern Illinois! We don't have much in the name of altitude and mountains here but we make up for it in sprawling scenic beauty and tons of beautiful rivers, lakes and trails! When I'm not running my small business, I'm volunteering my time helping another great cause called Gear Forward; as well as traveling, camping or hiking with my 2 dogs and my husband. We are section hiking all 160 miles of the River to River trail in Southern IL this year and preparing for our first AT section in October. I am a beginning outdoor blogger/vlogger and enjoy all things outside. I strictly practice and encourage the importance of LNT and the conservation of our public lands! I'm so happy to be here and to connect and network with amazing people sharing the same interests! See you out there!
Clarissa Thompson - Illinois
Hi I'm Clarissa! I'm a 500 hr Registered Yoga Teacher & run my own yoga business Clarissa Mae Yoga. My husband Wade & I love to adventure and travel & explore new places! We enjoy getting outdoors as often as we can and try to get out in the area several times a month as well as planning larger travels and trips. I love bringing Yoga and Adventure together and am even leading a Yoga & Adventure retreat to Guatemala in November!
Trier Knieper - Ohio
My name is Trier, 21, and I am a Michigan native living in Columbus, Ohio. I have 2 dogs that I hike and backpack with all over the country. We especially love road trips and meeting new people! I'm a runner, climber, hiker and basically anything that involves not being inside. I am a strong believer in living life to it's fullest and the best way to do that is to see all that this world has to offer. I work in Law Enforcement so getting outdoors is truly the best way to escape all the stress and just relax! Excited to be able to share my adventures with all of you!
