Alisha’s Bio

Alisha Isensee Flyin Ryan

Alisha is a senior History major at Gonzaga University and will be graduating in May 2019. She and her best friend will be thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail during summer 2019, and can’t wait for their new adventure together! Alisha, like many seniors, is undecided as to what to do with her life, but is considering getting her Masters in Counseling or pursuing Law School. She is passionate about environmental justice and wants to bring a social justice perspective to hiking the PCT by promoting responsible use of public lands. When she’s not studying or hiking, Alisha loves to read non-fiction, bake her famous honey bread and spend time laughing with her family and friends.
