About:

My name is Kate Nolan and I am a cofounder of DNK Presents. Getting outside has always been a passion of mine. I believe we need a connection to nature in order to live a happy, healthy and balanced life. I grew up camping, backpacking, downhill skiing, racing BMX and mountain bikes, trail running and rafting. I believe my bond with nature has helped me to excel in my professional career, helped to overcome obstacles personally and professionally and the spiritual gain has been profound.

About:

I like to say that I am an adventurista! I enjoy getting dirty hiking and backpacking in the woods, but I also like the occasional luxury of a hotel or cabin. Growing up in the country outdoor activity was always second nature to me, whether it was playing sports or building forts in the woods with my family or friends. I feel best when I am able to get outside and turn off my phone or other technology and just embrace nature! It’s an awesome feeling to be able to educate and share that with others.

Our Mission:

Guide individuals on adventure experiences allowing a space for them to step outside their comfort zones, try something for the first time, and in turn gain confidence and empowerment through experiential learning.

Our adventures may look like overnight backpacking retreats, mountain bike clinics, indoor to outdoor rock climbing programs, yoga, meditation, mindfullness, hiking, canoeing, disconnecting from technology, reconnecting with yourself. An adventure is an unusual or exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity, therefore there is always an element of surprise on our adventure experiences. Your life should be your greatest adventure, start living it NOW.

Your next great adventure is waiting!

We (Danielle & Kate Nolan – hence DNK) began DNK Presents because we want to encourage a happy, healthy community and lifestyle. We feel we live life to the fullest whether it’s mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, backpacking whatever it is we felt that having the balance of nature, and outdoor adventures has made us successful in our own careers. We decided to launch a DNK Presents to provide guided adventure retreats to individuals, groups and businesses to promote a balanced, happy, healthy lifestyle.

There is a trend in today’s society where a non-stop, technology consumed stagnant lifestyle is becoming more and more prevalent. We have noticed this and knew that there was a definite need that people want to get outside but, don’t know where to go, what to do, or wouldn’t feel safe going on an adventure alone. DNK Presents gives people the opportunity to reconnect with nature and try something for the first time.

For businesses studies have shown that their employees build stronger relationships, improve productivity, increase motivation, foster problem solving, encourage creativity, promote a healthy lifestyle, etc.

Personally outdoor adventures improve quality of life, reduces stress, helps build relationships, improves sleep patterns, reduces anxiety, and endless physical, mental and spiritual benefits.

DNK Presents provides a well-cultured, active and adventurous community and lifestyle. DNK Presents provides people and businesses with the opportunity to get out, explore nature and challenge yourself in a safe and fun atmosphere. Unplugging from technology gets you plugged back into real life and with yourself.
