Cotezi was born in Chile, South America to two outdoor loving parents. Her family moved to the states when she was 9 years old and set up camp in New York where she resided for the rest of her childhood, teenage years, and early adulthood. Growing up she always had a love for the outdoors, but her passion for hiking didn’t come to full fruition until the past couple of years. In 2016 she backpacked the iconic John Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada and had her mind pretty much blown! The following year, she decided to thru-hike the entire Pacific Crest Trail, from Mexico to Canada, and has been hooked on long distance hiking ever since. She loves being able to travel in that way, powered solely by her body and will. Thru-hiking has been a very special, life changing experience for her– She feels like she has been reacquainted with nature in a way like never before, and in, turn with her true self. She has recently made the move to Boulder, CO and absolutely loves it – with its incredible access to mountains and overall adventure culture, she feels very grateful and excited to call this place home.
