This is our story.

It all began in 2014, when our founder Gariele returned from a backpacking trip to Costa Rica. She was craving a sisterhood of adventurous women, but didn't know where to find one. So she created one instead.

Within six months, Rad Girls Collective grew from ground zero to 10,000 social media followers. Within a year, the movement was an established leader in women's adventure on social media.

Over the years, we've changed our team and our structure, but our mission has always stayed the same: to build a community of like-minded women who share a passion for adventure.

Subject line: I've got a question

How can my business work with you?

What a great question! We offer web design and social media services for a select number of adventure travel businesses. Please view our Services page for more information. We look forward to the possibility of working together!

Do you have a brand ambassador program?

Not at the moment, no. We've never had a strong plan for how we could include ambassadors. If you have any ideas, send an email our way at info [at] radgirlslife [dot] com.

Do you host meetups or have groups across the country?

Not anymore. At one point in time we had a few active Facebook groups, but we've found our energy is best spent in the areas that bring us joy, and that's connecting with all you beautiful people on social media.

How did you grow your Instagram account?

This is a huge question! We've been growing Rad Girls Collective since 2014 and we weren't an overnight success by any means. We've posted thousands of pieces of content, hosted giveaways, partnered with bigger brands, and focused on growing a community not just followers.

How can I get involved?

Share your adventures with us by using the #radgirlslife hashtag on Instagram! Also, if you have a skill that you think we'd benefit from (perhaps photography, blogging, or graphic design), feel free to send an email at info [at] radgirlslife [dot] com.
