The Born 2 Be Wild Team
Hi! Bruce Martin here. I’m an author, speaker, counselor and avid outdoorsman! As far back as I can remember, I’ve always loved the outdoors. From hiking and fishing trips as a 4 year-old in the Colorado Rockies, to an epic 460 mile, 6 week backpacking trip in the High Sierras in 2017, I love all things wild. And one of my greatest loves is taking folks like you outdoors and hoping a love affair begins!
I started Born 2 Be Wild outdoor adventures in 2003 to help others know the joy of backpacking and to develop their relationship with God and others. Since then I have logged over 2,000 miles in the Appalachian Mountains and another 1,000 miles in the High Sierra Mountains of California. I help people get away from the speed and the noise of suburban life and get back to the basics of walking with God, hearing His voice, and enjoying Him in His creation.
Hi, I’m Ashli Jennings! I was born and raised in Clay, Alabama, just outside of Birmingham. I now live in Madison with my husband and two girls. I’m an ER nurse and when I’m not hiking, I love to paddle board, snow ski, and spend time with my family. I fell in love with the Appalachian Trail and hope someday to hike from Georgia to Maine. I serve as a guide on B2BW adventures and I handle all things marketing and social media for Born 2 Be Wild, including being the new corporate marketing director!
