Hello! Welcome to "Alicia Joy Outdoors." My name is Alicia Thompson and I am an outdoor enthusiast, published author, content creator, kayak angler, adventure seeker, dog mom, and a strong advocate for introducing youth and women into the outdoors. I was born and raised in the "Northwoods" of Wisconsin, which is where my outdoor passion first began. I feel truly blessed to have been raised in a family that enjoys being together outdoors. A big thanks to my patient father who brought to life my love for fishing and hunting. Now, I live in the Western part of the state with my boyfriend Kurt and our big, lovable yellow lab, Charlie.
The idea for "Alicia Joy Outdoors" sparked when I began writing an article for a well-known Wisconsin magazine. I want to continue writing and to branch out from social media posts to allow a more "in-depth" approach on outdoor-related topics. I am excited to share my outdoor experiences and life adventures in a realistic, honest, and raw perspective. My hope is to inspire others to try something new, be adventurous, and get outdoors!
