Sandy Cuprisin started taking Lodge trips with the Sierra Club in 2014. Her first and favorite is Olympic National Park in Washington state where she discovered her love of different ecosystems. Hiking, biking and/or paddling on waterways in forests and parks is what feeds her soul and nurtures her spirit. Her extensive experience event planning along with her love of the outdoors led her to lead adventure trips with the Sierra Club. She is a life-long resident of the Midwest living most of her life in Chicago, Illinois raising her daughter and dogs. She enjoys spending time with her grandkids, family and friends playing paddle/racket sports and practicing yoga. She is an active volunteer with Chicago Animal Care and Control and the Salvation Army.
