Rachel LeRoy, Founder & CEO

I have loved maps since I was a little kid – I was the one pouring over the World Atlas, fascinated by the zoomed-out perspective. Curiosity led to finding myself in those pages, and as I grew and left the Vermont dairy farm where I grew up, explored, and lived in diverse environments, I explored my surroundings through a more personalized and confident lens. The places on my map have helped make me who I am.

Fast-forward through a degree in Environmental Science which included a map-making class and I was hooked on maps for life. I have been creating maps for over two decades now and enjoy bringing a fresh approach to map design. The joy I have when I am making a personalized map for someone, when they share their favorite places with others, when their guests feel the connection to their hosts – well, sharing infectious, contagious joy is what HipMaps is all about!

Fun facts: I am a proud map geek and…

📚  Adore reading – historical fiction especially

😻🐶  Love being mom to the cutest beagle in the world and the most fantastic orange cat
