Jessica “Dixie” Mills competed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in the summer of 2015. She grew up in Opelika, AL helping take care of her much younger siblings and much older grandparents.
After graduating from Auburn University with a degree in Biosystems Engineering and minor in Agronomy and Soils, she began a career with NRCS as an Ag Engineer. After a couple years, (what she thought was) a big opportunity was presented to work with Halliburton in Colorado.
After a year and a half of being a prisoner of a big corporation, she decided to reboot. While hiking the AT, she decided upon a fresh new start. Upon completing the hike, she started her own small business and several smaller ventures for a much happier, self-controlled life.
