A sunshine state girl hailing from Miami, Portia’s idea of outdoor activities were always chasing the sun as a track and field athlete or hanging at the beach with friends. Now this 400m sprinter turned marathoner is an outdoor enthusiast looking to develop new skills and share her passion. After being introduced to NY State day hikes in 2015, Portia enjoyed the tranquility that these day retreats offered from the hustle and bustle of the city. Portia brings to our team her willingness to learn more about nature, her spunky personality, and her leadership skills. When she’s not hiking, biking or running you can find her traveling to sunny places or building community with friends.
