Welcome to Inner Compass Blog!
My name is Sara Beth and I’m a nature-loving weekend wanderer. I live for the weekend and am often found exploring Shenandoah National Park, hiking along the Potomac River, or enjoying other nearby outdoor opportunities. Exploring nature on the weekends is my way of finding balance in the work-first-and-always culture of DC.
