Bernadette Rankin is a freelance adventure travel writer and joyously insatiable outdoor videographer.  Located in the Pacific Northwest for now, Rankin roams wherever her camper van, hiking boots, kayak,  mountain bike, backpack, and rock climbing shoes take her.

Rankin’s addiction to empowering the adventurous spirit in others came from an unlikely combination  of 19 years of experience as a Police Officer and advocate specializing in women, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+  owned small creative businesses. Through witnessing the healing nature of the outdoor world and the transformative effect of taking on misogi-type challenges, she is now devoted to spreading all the words of these remarkable stories you really need to know about.
