Arwen Turner

Arwen Turner is a fat nature lover, an advocate for increasing outdoor equity, inclusion, and access and the Chief Imagination Officer of Thicket Adventure, a company making comfortable and high-quality true plus-size outdoor apparel. The idea for Thicket came after Arwen went on a body inclusive group hike, met a bunch of badass fat hikers and got really mad about the lack of gear and apparel for larger-bodied outdoorsy (and future outdoorsy) people out there. Arwen is also the executive director of Come Alive Outside, a non profit that partners with healthcare, public health, outdoor recreation, and local businesses to connect individuals, families, and entire communities to the health and wellness benefits of outdoor spaces where they live, work, and play. Arwen loves swimming in lakes, spooky things, woodsy walks, and chocolate cupcakes.
