Hello! I am LaMonica and I am super excited to join the FGH family as a Seattle ambassador. I went on my first hike a few years ago and have been hooked ever since! There is just something calming and soothing about walking through greenery and discovering hidden little gems. I am so fortunate to live in a state that offers an unlimited number of trails and mountains to explore. I look forward to helping create a body positive Seattle community. I want to encourage people to get out and embrace the outdoors without feeling intimidated. I want people to experience the feeling of euphoria that comes with reaching the top of a mountain. My current goal in life is to climb Mt Kilimanjaro to celebrate my 50th birthday. I can’t wait to get out and meet my fellow body positive hikers!

I have always enjoyed being outdoors.  While growing up I was an active kid, not an athletic kid.  I was the one climbing trees, wondering off on my own down abandoned railroad lines, and using my imagination to make up stories along the trail.  Growing up in Iowa cornfields didn’t provide much variation in scenery.  I moved to Washington State almost 4 years ago and feel I’ve seen so little of the beauty of this state. I am so excited to explore more trails around the Seattle area and even more excited to be a part of FGH.  I was a fat girl and I’m a fat woman.  When I’m outside I feel contentment and joy. I enjoy feeling the strength of my legs, my heart and lungs working as I climb a steep part of the trail, and the feeling of accomplishment as I look back on the where we started and where we are now.
