I followed my heart in the summer of 2016 and made a big cross country move from Nashville, TN to Bellingham, WA. Urged on by friends who said the Pacific Northwest was a healing place, I packed up my small car with just the essentials and took a huge leap of faith. I knew I wanted to work for myself, and after much soul searching and asking myself, "What are you passionate about?", the one thing that kept ringing in my ears was kayaking. All I had to do was look on the map of Bellingham, and I could see it was a paddler's paradise. There was much to learn, so I spent every moment I could of my first summer in Bellingham on the water. I can't wait to get out and show you all the beautiful places I've discovered!
Hello! My name is Nevin (they/them), and I can usually be found making art, exploring outside, or studying at a cute coffee shop. I'm currently working towards a double major at WWU, combining Recreation Leadership with a Fairhaven concentration in rites of passage and art therapy. My degree is a word salad of healing, creating, and making sure everyone has access to the amazing wild spaces around us.
