We are excited to announce the brand new Gregory ambassador team! Our ambassador team is the embodiment of everything Gregory stands for. We could not be happier to have them represent us as they head off into their adventures. Without further ado, please give a warm welcome to our amazing team.
Jenny is a writer and a hiker with a passion for bringing people together. In 2016, she founded Unlikely Hikers, an outdoor community for all folks underrepresented in outdoor culture with an extra focus on plus-size and queer adventurers. Her proudest moments have been thru-hiking the Salkantay in Peru and partnering with Gregory for the first-ever line of plus-size packs. She dreams of becoming an author.

Ana is a lover of movement and the outdoors. You can find her walking, jogging, hiking, or taking barre classes. She was born in the US but grew up in Mexico and has lived in 3 countries and traveled to about 3. She loves eating out, a good cold beer, and a sunset along with her favorite people. Her goal this year is to hike around three sisters and visit one new town or city in the world.

Alexis Martin: @lassosafroworld
Alexis is a sassy yet fun avid hiker just looking to tackle as many mountain summits as she can. All while trying to just kick doors down in the outdoor community for Black and POC that are underrepresented. While also fighting for animal shelters and rescues. She loves to blaze trails and show others that look like her, that we DO this, and CAN do this.
Alexis’s Favorite Pack(s): Nano 20
Andy Neal: @andyfilmsandhikes
Andy is a plus-size hiker, backpacker, and avid outdoors person who discovered the outdoors after graduating from film school at age 37.
Growing up in Southern California and Las Vegas as a stereotypical city kid Andy’s newfound love of hiking led him to start The Hiker Podcast, a weekly show that explores how hiking has changed people and how those people are changing the world around them.
When not on the trail or recording a podcast, Andy is a plus-size model, Instagram influencer, and works in tv and film production.
Andy lives in beautiful Southern Oregon with his wife of 15 years, Lindsey, three kids, and two dogs.

Nick Tortajada: @nick.tort
Nick is a professional photographer and content creator specializing in shooting outdoor adventures. He is an avid backpacker, hiker, camper, and mountain bike faller-off-er (and considers that a skill!). He believes that life is best when shared, a philosophy that led him to create The Adventure Dispatch – a website to connect with the community, learn from others, share what he’s learned, and hopefully inspire people to live their best outdoor lives. He is a firm believer that every occasion has its perfect backpack match and happily admits he may have a problem.
Olivia Tati: @theoliviatati
Olivia is 27 years old and has already traveled to over 50 countries. She is passionate about pushing her own personal boundaries, exploring the world, and having an absolute blast doing it. When she’s not being an engineer, or fully immersed in her real estate career, you can find her exploring the great outdoors with her favorite adventure pup or hopping on a plane across the world.
Olivia’s Favorite Pack(s): Border 25
Steven Williams: @stowawaysteve
Steven “aka Candid” is an adventure photographer, thru-hiker, and cat dad. Steven’s background growing up in the outdoors has shaped his creative style. An accomplished explorer with a worn passport and a passion for life, Steven’s images can be characterized by his desire to travel and photograph those beautiful, candid moments.

Paulina Peña: @paulinap
Paulina is a dweller of the mountains, desert & sea. A Chilean American photographer, storyteller, and climber.

Sandra Khoury: @_sandrakh
The mountain lifestyle is a space Sandra fell into in her late 20s, and she hasn’t looked back since. You can always find her somewhere in the Canadian Rockies – backpacking, cycling, and hiking in the summers, downhill and backcountry skiing in the winters. When not exploring her backyard, she enjoys traveling to new places and documenting each adventure along the way.
Sandra’s Favorite Pack(s): Targhee 26
Gary Babich: @gary_babich
Gary is an adventurous soul at heart; he can often be found in the mountains of the PNW or the deserts of the Southwest once the weekend hits. You’ll find his adventure pup by his side at every step, and they are always in search of that perfect campsite to relax and unplug. Either by foot or vehicle, they are always taking the road (or trail) less traveled.
Gary’s Favorite Pack(s): Citro 30 H20
