Hi! It’s been a while since I’ve done an introduction post… and I’ve made a lot of new connections lately, thought it would be fun to share an introduction – or maybe a reintroduction of myself.
I’m married to my best friend, Jason, and we are celebrating 19 years married this August. ❤
My hubby and I comprise each half of the Hise Hikers… we are avid outdoors people and spend much of the spring and summer months backpacking and hiking as much as we can. Two summers ago, we completed our longest adventure yet – a 75-mile trek through Yosemite. It was one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life. ❤
My trail name is Rexie, and you may see me use the 🦖 often as emojis help me communicate and articulate more deeply.
I have two business “titles.” The first is Chief Overwhelm Solver of Pretty Smart Virtual Services, a full-service virtual assistant company specializing in rescuing our clients from overwhelm. I am also the Director of Adventure at Summit to Your Success, a choose-your-own-adventure-focused healing portal where I help others learn about the healing power of nature.
I have been connected to nature for as long as I can remember. And more recently, after enduring a 2-year stint of grief and loss in my own life starting with the unexpected death of my mom in 2012 and continuing for 2 years and 27 other deaths in my life. I wrote a book about my journey in hopes that it would help others to connect with and reignite their own joy in their life after loss… and to help them realize that grief doesn’t have to be what defines them.
My Choose Your Own Adventure Healing Portal serves support to people looking to learn how to tap into the healing power of nature. I have created 3 card decks with different themes designed to help someone bring elements of nature into their world – whether using them at their desk or in their office or taking them out in nature on an adventure – they feature a photo from one of our trips around the Northern California area and are paired with one of my daily workout mantras and each card has a “today’s action” which is designed to help get you in action and moving.
Nature is my happy place.
I appreciate you reading this and look forward to getting to know you better. ❤
