Our mission is to foster women’s self-worth, encouragement and acceptance of others, and ability to prioritize one’s own well-being through meaningful connection and outdoor adventures!
Jackie Seidman - Founder
Lehigh Valley Women of Adventure was established in August 2022 by Jackie L. Seidman of Whitehall, Pennsylvania. In February 2022, shortly after losing her mother, Jackie was nominated for a women’s adventure weekend sponsored by Dreamland Safari Tours in Kanab, Utah. During this experience, she realized the power that sharing in outdoor experiences with other women can have in improving mental and physical health and building confidence. In an effort to provide a safe environment for women to experience the outdoors together, she started a local hiking group. By January 2023, the group had grown to 3,000 members.
LVWoA aims to empower women in the Lehigh Valley area and beyond. Our goal is to help women prioritize themselves and their physical and mental health by encouraging them to participate in outdoor adventures with other women with similar interests. Our organized hikes and other adventures allow our members to share their stories, build relationships, and empower each other.
