Writer of Nature | Travel | Adventure





Mandy Burkholder honed her creative skill at Fort Lewis College in the foothills of the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado. After graduating with a Bachelor of the Arts in English, she took time to explore Europe and ski the Swiss Alps. Her love of the outdoors, travel, and adventuring inform her work in every way–from seeking diverse stories for article pitches to researching best practices on a global scale.

“No story is devoid of meaning, if you know how to look for it. This is as true of nursery rhymes and daydreams as it is of novels and epic poems.”
-Daniel Quinn, “My Ishmael”
