Known otherwise as Kit Whistler, she rose to fame with her longtime partner James Campbell after the two quit their jobs and took to the road, documenting the nomadic life on their joint blog and Instagram Idle Theory Bus.

She and James have become known under the pseudonyms Kit Whistler and J.R. Switchgrass. These character versions of themselves appeared in the book Orange is Optimism, which is a novel inspired by their Idle Theory Bus adventures.
