email@example.com Charity grew up in New Mexico, hiking and camping with her family in the Rockies. She went to college in Philadelphia, where she realized how much she missed the mountains and sunshine of her youth. She moved to Santa Barbara in 2005 to work as an interior designer, and initially found Wilderness Youth Project in 2009 via the Americorps Nonprofit Corps program. She supports WYP with her graphic design skills. She spends much of her time bike-commuting around Santa Barbara with her family, as well as searching out adventures both locally and in any mountain range she can get to. She enjoys following her curiosity for the plants and animals of the terrain she passes through, whether by mountain bike or foot, solo or with young children.
