Rayna here! I’m excited to be a part of Fat Girls Hiking and to be a part of such an awesomely inclusive group. Looking forward to continuing what Summer has started. I left NYC and moved to New Haven to find some more outdoor time and thrilled to be doing it with Fat Girls Hiking. I love being outdoors, people and sharing ideas, and found that with my 1st hike! Can’t wait to coordinate some great adventures!

My name is Kate and I’m so excited to help foster community in the greater New Haven area by serving as an ambassador for Fat Girls Hiking! I’ve only lived in the area for a couple of years but I love exploring with my dog (Elly), my cyclist husband, and our tween/teen stepkids. I’m eager to see more of Connecticut with my FGHers, too—a state that I think is totally under-appreciated for its natural beauty. My mobility is slightly compromised after a really bad leg break in 2012, so I walk a little slower than I used to but that’s OK—more time and breathing room to chat! I also am a giant fan of water aerobics and hope to get my instructor’s license in 2019. I can’t wait to meet other folks who are a part of (or want to be a part of) this amazing, inclusive community!
