Miss A Columnist

As a Women Studies major, certified Pilates instructor and owner of New Body Pilates Studio in West Seattle, Megan Phillips is especially interested in communicating ideas about health and well being. Her overarching goal is to create a platform where women can reconnect with their bodies, learn about health, nutrition, beauty and fashion, providing them with the knowledge they need to live their best lives. She firmly believes that one creates the most effective change in the world when one is working from a solid foundation of a healthy body, mind and spirit. Other than her passion for health and fitness, she is also interested in exploring societal trends and timely topics and has been published in both Seattle Magazine and Seattle Bride Magazine. She is also an avid snowboarder and surfer, and enjoys hiking, backpacking, sailing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. More cerebral pursuits include a love of reading (especially on the beach!), and nerd alert: doing math.

REI Adventures On Patagonia At Flagship REI Seattle

Patagonia, a region located in Argentina and Chile, is known for its stunning untamed landscape of rugged snow capped peaks and monolithic glaciers that give way to thunderous waterfalls and verdant swaths of rolling terrain. While it has in recent years become a popular destination for climbers, hikers, adventurers and environmentalists alike — The North Face owner Douglas Tompkins has conserved over two million acres of wilderness throughout the region– there is still much to be discovered in this wild, otherworldly destination.
