About the Journalist

Adventure journalist Jayme Moye covers travel, mountain sports and culture, and pushing the limits of human potential. Her award-winning writing appears in National Geographic, Outside, and Travel + Leisure, among others. She is the former managing editor of Elevation Outdoors and a former adventure news correspondent for Men’s Journal.

Jayme is the first woman to have been awarded the North American Travel Journalists Association’s Grand Prize in Travel Journalism more than once: in 2014, for reporting on Afghanistan’s first female road-bike racing team, and in 2018, for breaking the story on sexual harassment in river-raft guiding in the U.S. In 2019, she received the Banff Centre’s Mountaineering Article Award for Mountain Literature and the Keith Bellows Award for Excellence in Travel Journalism.

Jayme’s personal essays have been anthologized in The Best Women’s Travel Writing and Vignettes and Postcards from Paris. She is co-author with Hans Florine of On the Nose: A Lifelong Obsession with Yosemite’s Most Iconic Climb, a 2017 Best Book Award Finalist.
