Rebecca is the founder of Hike Like a Woman, a platform (website, YouTube, mini-courses, podcast+) focused on getting women outside, learning new skills and exploring with confidence. 

Rebecca tells us all about her latest ventures and how being diagnosed with breast cancer led her to focus her businesses on what she loves - skiing and hiking. 

Rebecca takes us through her journey to founding Hike Like a Woman - and where it is now.  Rebecca has developed a wide range of “Hike Like a Woman” resources from YouTube (how to videos) to podcasts (see links below).  

We get some great insights into how to simplify your approach to hiking - and just get out there.  Rebecca has some great tips for how to connect with other outdoor groups in your community (start with the local gear shop). 

Rebecca takes us through the basics/essential supplies for taking a day hike with your children - including water, first aid kit, and plenty of snacks! 

We learn about Rebecca’s BRAVE framework to show women the power of outdoor adventure:

Believe in yourself.
Research + Learn
Acquire Skills
Visualize Success
Explore

We discuss the potential risks of hiking from wildlife to injuries and how outdoor education and risk management can be the foundation for a safe hiking experience.  And most importantly, we talk about the benefits of getting outdoors and hiking solo or with your family!
