Marieke has been a full-time vehicle dweller since May 2021. She travels with her tiny pup, Tozi, whom she got on the road in New Mexico. Her roots are nomadic: from touring the Midwest on tandem bicycle with her father growing up, to moving cross-country from her hometown of Chicago to Seattle, then across the ocean to Hawaii, and, finally, to Louisiana before calling the open road home. 

Marieke has a diverse background in education, project management, and community organizing, and has a real passion for volunteerism, the nomadic community, and off-grid living. You can find her enjoying the beautiful desert sunsets in the winter and lakeside views in Wyoming and Montana in the summer.
