About Megan Roop:
Megan Roop is passionate about helping women quiet the noise of everyday life and come back to who they truly are through the power of nature and sisterhood. She is the founder of Quiet Adventures, which brings women together to connect, hone their adventure skills in the great outdoors, and learn personal practices to keep them centered every day of the year.
When she’s not guiding others to discover the restorative power of waking up with the sun, drinking water from a crystal clear lake, meditating by a campfire, and falling asleep to the wind rustling through the leaves, she can be found hitting the trail alone or with her husband.
