OLIVIA

Gear Coop Store Manager


Ever since I was a kid, I spent the majority of my time outside. I love climbing, backpacking and fishing; and love even more, a combination of the 3. My goal in life is to travel and see new things, eat new foods, and experience the beauty of the outdoors in as many places as possible. - olivia

FAVORITE QUOTE:

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side
It's the climb - Miley Cyrus
