Roads Rivers and Trails

Dream. Plan. Live.

Katie Cavanaugh

Hiya! My name is Katie and I am a recent graduate from UC with my Bachelor’s in Cybersecurity and my Master’s in Criminal Justice. I will be working for the FBI in the upcoming fall and enjoying my last free summer. Growing up my family would travel frequently to National Parks and go hiking and when I came to UC, I joined the Mountaineering Club and it really inspired me to try backpacking, rock and mountain climbing, and scuba diving.

My happy place has always been hammocking in the Red River Gorge while watching people climb and then eating pizza at Miguel’s for dinner. I recently have gotten into more mountaineering and over the summer I will be attempting to climb the Grand Teton. I am so excited to work at RRT this summer and help enjoy the outdoors as much as I do!
