Lisa Maloney got her start covering outdoor recreation for a local paper. Nowadays you'll find her work in major print and online publications, and she often mentors others through the writing process. She's especially passionate about fitness, green living, plus anything and everything to do with the outdoors. She is also the author of 50 Hikes Around Anchorage and is the Hiking Expert for About.com.
Fitness and Dance Expertise
Lisa's a certified personal trainer and a reformed gym rat. Now that she's escaped the gym, she makes it a point to find other ways of working out, including running, martial arts, and dance. She's crazy about social Latin dancing and all types of Irish dancing.
Natural Remedies Expertise
Some aspects of Western medicine are truly amazing, but Lisa firmly believes in the value of natural remedies (including herbs, exercise, and proactive, healthy living) for treating many conditions. She managed a health food store for five years and studied with a master herbalist.
