We're very excited to introduce our inaugural class of Tru Flask Adventure Correspondents. This program initiative is something we've been planning for quite awhile and we're glad to finally bring it to fruition.
Throughout 2022 you'll be seeing lots of posts on social media from these amazing adventurers, so we thought you'd like to get to know them! Today we're featuring Lexie Doehner. Lexie is a photographer born and raised in the midwest - Michigan to be exact, and we're thrilled to have her as part of our group!
Q: What made you want to be an Adventure Correspondent?
I wanted to become an Adventure Correspondent because as a photographer, I love to share my experiences, love for the outdoors and encourage other to get outside!
Q: What do you love most about mother nature?
What I love most about being surrounded by nature is the beauty in simple things. It’s a breath of fresh air - literally. Discovering new places, finding little hidden treasures, plants, rocks, and everything in between. I’m in love with it all.
Q: How does spending time outdoors affect you?
Spending time outdoors is my self-care. It’s important to me because we can often feel overwhelmed with everyday life. If we don’t take the time to take a step back and just take in more moments, you will feel disconnected with life.
Q: What advice would you give to someone who wants to explore nature but they don’t know where to start?
I would say, just simply start searching and save the locations that interest you. Make plans with friends, start researching simple hikes, proper footwear and bring water everywhere! Before you know it, you will become more comfortable with your environment and it will take off from there!
Q: Name one outdoor place you could explore over and over and never get tired of it?
Mt. Rainier National Park. Breathtaking every time. the beautiful trails along with seeing Mt. Rainier within every view is inspiring and often leaves me in awe the entire time.
Q: What/Who is your spirit animal?
Definitely a bird. I would just travel everywhere all the time.
Q: On most days, you can be found________?
Most days you can find me at your local coffee shop when I’m not already outdoors or traveling!
Q: What’s the secret to happiness and joy in life?
Taking care of yourself. Self-care, whatever you think that is to you, is the most important way to be happy.
Q: Best piece of advice you’re ever received?
To never take things personally with others. A lot of the time we get too caught up in how people think, feel, or perceive you and most of the time it is a reflection on themselves. Just be happy and never apologize for how you live your life if it makes you happy!
