States Covered: New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania
Meet the Ambassadors
Kay Allan - Pennsylvania
Hi my name is Kay and I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Pennsylvania! I was exposed to outdoor adventure and traveling at a very young age and have been passionate about exploring ever since. For me, mountains are the best medicine and though my home state may not have the biggest mountains, I'm determined to reveal the hidden beauty that lies in the Appalachians (spoiler alert: the picture above is NOT in Pennsylvania). I'm pumped to be part of such a cool community of people who share the same passion for nature, adventure, and mountains! Let's get outside!
Kaitlyn Fortier - New York
Hey there! My name is Kati and I currently live in Upstate New York where I am a teacher, coach and weekend wanderer. I grew up among the very flat terrain of eastern Long Island but after an inspiring two weeks in the Adirondacks as a junior in college I have never wanted to be any place more than I want to be in the mountains! I consider the Adirondacks my playground, however, I have spent and will continue to spend time in the White (NH) and Catskill Mountains as well. I am currently working toward my Adirondack 46 High Peaks in the warmer, summer months and try to tackle fire towers in my hiking ‘off-season’, also known as snow season. I am wicked excited to have a group of women to share the stoke with and look forward to plenty of epic summits with you beautiful ladies.
Angela DeLisle - New York
Hey, I'm Angela and I live in Upstate New York. The Adirondacks prompted my love for the outdoors and adventure at a young age. I fell in love with hiking a few years ago when I began hiking the 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks. I quickly became obsessed with the rugged trails and challenging climbs. I became a 46er in 2016 and I'm now working on the New Hampshire 48 with my dog Jaxon. I enjoy everything related to the outdoors and am passionate about teaching others how to enjoy these places responsibly by practicing Leave No Trace. I am happiest when I'm dancing on a summit while sharing an epic view with other badass mountain chicks.
Melissa Dougherty - New Jersey
Hi! I am Melissa and I live in Northern NJ. I am a full-time Event Producer by day and an aspiring metalsmith by night. I really fell in love with hiking and the outdoors six years ago on my first trip to the Adirondacks. I am always looking to explore new places and hike every chance I can get. I love traveling to find the biggest mountains but I have also learned to love exploring locally. Hiking is the best physical and mental therapy. I am so excited to join the Mtn Chicks family and share my love for adventure and the outdoors with Mtn Chicks everywhere!
