Jessica “Dixie” Mills graduated from Auburn University in 2012 as a Biosystems Engineer with a minor in Agronomy and Soils. After working in the rat race with the USDA-NRCS and the later with Halliburton, she decided to take a walk and enjoy a nature reboot.
Almost by accident she began monetizing her new passion of backpacking. Over a period of 3-4 years she has become a full-time YouTuber and is in the process of achieving the Triple Crown of Hiking (AT, PCT & CDT).
Jessica joins us today to discuss rebooting in nature through long distance backpacking & monetizing your hobbies and passions.
