Our Founder

Women walking together bridge our communities step by step.


I don’t think I realized how disconnected I was from community until my kids and I moved to a small town in Connecticut where we knew no one.

It was there, with my children in high school and me, a single working parent, that it sunk in how few connections I actually had; with little sense of community, no nearby family and a few friends sprinkled behind.

What I have come to understand through my love of walking and nature, and my work and life experiences, is that what began as a vision, is now my life’s mission: women walking and talking together.

When I started WomenWalking, I didn’t have a clue about any of it, but life shows up in unexpected ways. I know, with every fiber of my being, that the very simple act of women walking together creates positive change; for myself, for my community and for my world.

Happiness, as wise person once said, is an inside job. When I feel good and confident and happy, I bring it with me everywhere I go. When I’m happy, I offer my happiness to others. Walking with women in the outdoors, brings me community and happiness which I offer to you. Please join me for a walk.

-The vision of WomenWalking is dedicated to my late husband, Kevin J Regan, for believing in me and the possibility of women connecting worldwide though the simple act of walking side by side. December 15, 2014 xo
