Hi, I’m Miranda, and I want to welcome you to My Road Trip Travel! After spending 5 or 6 years working with bloggers and solopreneurs, I felt like I needed a creative outlet of my own.

I was born and raised in the Midwest in northwest Ohio. After dozens of job interviews in my hometown, traveling as far as Detroit and Cleveland, and a video interview for a PR firm in Orlando, I felt like it was time to take a leap of faith.

Then I moved to the Atlanta area in 2017 to pursue a career in media (my Communications degree made me think I wanted to be a news anchor). And to figure out who I wanted to be.

Along the way, I rediscovered my love for the great outdoors and that I was never meant to work at a corporate job at all. So I officially registered my virtual assistant business in 2019 and have never looked back.

Hiking Pursuit was launched in 2022, but my adventures began as a kid (I’m still bummed that my mom lost the throwaway cameras used on our family trip to Niagara Falls, UGH).

This website is more than just a travel blog. It’s a resource for hiking enthusiasts and anyone who wants to enjoy everything this great country has to offer. From road trips and breweries to hiking tips and nature trails, I’m sharing all the best places to explore in the US.
