What we do

Here at Gutsy Girl Living we have one mission: tell the stories of gutsy women. Through photos, videos, interviews and quotes we strive to create a community of strong, talented women who appreciate, inspire, and engage with one another.

 

Our Story

Co-founders and best friends, Caylee Pugh and Liz Levitch, met while teaching abroad in Thailand. After experiencing their own gutsy moments -- installing lights in caves for Buddhist monks, motorbiking through coastal villages, and camping in remote cornfields -- they decided to share their stories, along with those of other inspiring women, with the world.

About Caylee

THE COOLEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN IS: THE AURORA BOREALIS shining above me while I stood on a frozen lake IN THE NORTH POLE of finland.

I SURPRISED MYSELF: WHEN I SIGNED UP FOR IMPROV CLASSES AT THE FAMOUS SECOND CITY TRAINING CENTER and when I LEARNED HOW TO SURF in costa rica.

MY DREAM FOR GUTSY GIRL LIVING IS: THAT I'd Love TO LEAD A VARIETY OF EVENTS AND RETREATS FOR ADVENTUROUS women TO STEP OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONES together.

Seven THINGS that I LOVE ARE: interpretive Dancing, Playing sad Ukulele songs, Korean dramas, MIDNIGHT Peanut Butter MILKSHAKES, Bicycle tours abroad, nature photography, and DEEP CONVERSATIONS.
