Cori Keatts

Hi y'all I'm Cori and this February I am beginning my NOBO thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. A little background on me-- I grew up in Staunton, Virginia and I recently graduated from college at James Madison University. Coffee, good tunes, and furry animals are a few things that never fail to put a pep in my step. Being outside and along the AT feels like home for me, and I'm so grateful that I have this platform to share this journey with you all... cheers!!
