MEET WHOA CO-FOUNDERS + CHIEF ADVENTURERS
Allison & Danielle
Allison Fleece & Danielle Thornton met planning their first trip to Kilimanjaro, and they immediately knew it was a match made in adventure heaven. What they didn't know is that their first experience would not be their last OR that climbing Kilimanjaro would change their lives forever. After their first trip up Mt. Kilimanjaro, they were hooked and knew they were onto something - the unique combo of adventure travel, camaraderie and giving back was something they needed to share! Over the next six months they poured their heart and souls into starting WHOA travel and building a community of kick ass adventurous women all around the world. In 2013, Allison and Danielle left their full time jobs in International Education and Advertising to pursue their dream - using their unique style to motivate women to step out of their comfort zones and take on the world!
When they're not adventuring somewhere in the world, Allison and Danielle live in New York City. They have collectively visited over 65 countries, all 7 continents, and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro over ten times...and still counting!
