Julie Frieder is an innovator, problem solver, and sustainability professional. She earned a double master’s degree in environmental science and public policy from the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University and has worked to drive environmental solutions in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors for over two decades. Julie stepped away from a career in sustainable and responsible investing to travel with her family for thirteen months in a twenty-four-foot RV equipped with four bikes, three kayaks, a 72-watt solar system, and a very large dog. She lives in Boulder, Colorado, and strives to wonder more, consume less, and connect the old-fashioned way—in nature or around a lively dinner table with friends, family, and great cheer.
