Hi! I’m currently studying environmental science at PSU. I spend a lot of my free time going on hikes. I’ve grown up with horses, dogs, cats, and a bunch of other critters. I live in SW Portland, but do end up at other parts of town often. I also love running, so if your dog has lots of energy I would be happy taking them on a run.See Profile
