Tobie graduated from the University of Utah with degrees in Sociology and Political Science and a Certificate in Criminology. She is lucky enough to have an awesome husband, two amazing daughters and three crazy cats.
Tobie fell in love with traveling when she was 17 and backpacked through Europe and drove from Utah to Canada. During college she traveled to Mexico to participate in a study abroad program and after college she started traveling with her husband and daughters. In 2002 they spent 3 months backpacking through central Mexico and in 2013 they spent 12 days driving from Utah to Guatemala where they lived, worked, and volunteered. Tobie stays busy working as a birth and postpartum doula and running Guatemalan Humanitarian Tours.
Tobie's favorite life adventures have been mothering two awesome daughters, marrying her best friend and raising praying mantis in her garden.
Marrying my best friend and the multiple adventures we've experienced together, whether it's travel, raising our girls, eating delicious food, or playing pickleball. My life is an adventure every day and I wouldn't change it a bit.
Focusing on the present and figuring out how to answer the daily question from my kids, ‘what’s for dinner.’
Finding the hidden treasure of the soul in the mountains.
Jen has lived in Utah most of her life. She and her husband, Jeremy, have six children who bring her a great deal of joy. Jen is naturally organized and enjoys the bustle of a busy household, the smell of freshly baked bread, and making delicious food.
She and her husband own a print and design firm and Jen manages the customer service and fulfillment. Jen has served on the school community counsel at the elementary school for over a decade, has sat on several committees in the community, and serves in her church.
She finds fulfillment watching her children perform on the field, in the gym, and on the stage. She serves her neighbors and keeps track of old friends. She loves the feeling of fresh mountain air in her lungs, the feel of the beach between her toes, hiking ruins, and the bright, starry night sky.
Life is the adventure - raising a family, navigating the day to day of being an entrepreneur, experiencing as much of the world as we can, and enjoying all the pieces of being at home.
I would definitely have to say visiting Patagonia was my top adventure. Standing at the end of the road on the farthest road south before Antarctica and gazing upon giant glaciers was cool.
Learning how to navigate motherhood to my 3 children & 2 dogs.

Selecting one Favorite Life Adventure is tough. I've had so many! From taking my wife to Guatemala and traveling all over the country with her, to coming to study in the US in freezing, but beautiful Rexburg, ID. Life is an adventure and love that about life!
