We connect brands with businesses, businesses with customers, and customers with brands. Simply put, we connect the Outdoor Industry with the Southeastern Outdoor community.
I started On the Road and Off in 2015. I love doing really anything in the woods - but rock climbing has shaped my life the most. My favorite flower is a snapdragon and has been since I could say the word. If I could be anywhere tomorrow, it would be on a small stream surrounded by hemlocks and rhododendrons fly fishing for wild brown trout.
I've been in the outdoor industry going on 16 years now, it's lead me to a lot of different places but none as exciting as where I'm at now. I love most things that require long days in the woods but my favorites right now are climbing and trail running. And it's hard for me not to crack a smile when I'm on two wheels.
The best times of my life have been spent outdoors, so it’s fitting that I’ve landed in the outdoor industry. I love hiking, traveling, and taking photos, and my main creative outlet is making jewelry as a little side gig. I'm well-suited for rep life because I love spending time on the road and seeing all of the small towns and sights along the way.
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed, fascinated, and inspired by the outside world. I’ve spent many years on both the retail and vendor sides of the outdoor industry. I've been a part of many different teams in my journey and with the oRo team I feel like I've found my truest family and I am just so excited to take our next steps.
I was introduced to the local climbing scene and outdoor industry in 2006 which became an all-consuming passion. After working retail with Half Moon Outfitters in Athens, GA, I migrated to Colorado to work with La Sportiva NA in brand customer service and marketing before beginning my career as a rep. Now based in Chattanooga, TN, I’m psyched to continue to cultivate relationships with independent and specialty retailers in the Southeast.
