Marina Clementi

Hey all – I’m Marina, aka Librarian. Native Rocksylvanian and 2017 NOBO thru-hiker. I’m a lit nerd, backpacker, bikepacker, trail runner, and (bad) climber. In college, I studied creative writing and archaeology and ended up on some amazing projects in Tanzania, Mongolia, and Peru. (The nomad gene is a very real thing.) These days when I’m not outside I'm writing, editing, and fantasizing about moving into my car.
