Meet our Adventure Guide, Erica Bibby!

My name is Erica Bibbey. I grew up in the beautiful city Chattanooga, Tennessee in which my family is third generation Tennessee natives.  I have always enjoyed the outdoors as most Tennesseans do, especially hiking, paddling on lakes and rivers, rock climbing and most outdoor adventures.  After earning one of my first higher education degrees, I decided it was time to move to a faster paced area and Atlanta seemed to be a wise choice. However, being from a much smaller area I felt that downtown or midtown would be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, I found this wonderful city called Sandy Springs. This place has been my home for 13 years now. It is filled with outdoor adventure including parks, lakes, rivers, and great people. With this in mind, I enjoy being one of the Heritage Sandy Springs Outdoor Club (SSOCs) guides, because I want to encourage others to share in our wonderful community and outdoor adventures with a great group of people. I look forward to meeting our Sandy Springs Outdoor Adventurers as well as newcomers to the community and outdoor adventures.
