Travel Tales: Thru-Hiking the Appalachian Trail 2022
- Library Hall
Join Bud Werner Library and Rocky Mountain Youth Corps for an evening of tales from the trail. Michelle Petix has been working and volunteering for Routt County youth service organizations in a variety of positions since 1993; including Partners Mentoring and Rocky Mountain Youth Corps. In August 2022 Michelle completed a 165-day and 2,195-mile thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail!
In September, she launched Spitfire ProjectBased Consulting, LLC, specializing in supporting non-profit leaders by tackling the tasks that they simply don’t have time or expertise for. Michelle has a strong passion for mentoring, everything outdoors, and finding something to laugh about (usually herself) whenever possible.
