Professional adventure athlete Liz Sampey explores the world by bike, ski, packraft, and whatever else necessary. She talks about how expeditions fit into her life, what is home, how she creates consistency even though she never really knows where she’s headed off to next, and her amazing new project Rise Aligned bringing movement and mindfulness to young people.
Liz has long been a competitor and adventure athlete. But it was when she quit her job to make a movie in Iceland that she focused on the unknown of exploring. In addition to that fateful Iceland trip, she has recently been to Guatemala, Peru, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. She is also a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a coach, and a writer.
