From a young age, my older brother would share stories and images with me, of the time with he had spent in the San Juans. Raised on the east coast, I would fantasize about living in the beautiful San Juan Mountain Range. This led me to move to the tiny town of Telluride in 2017. Instantly, I fell in love with all the mountains had to offer.
Growing up as a gymnast, my first time rock climbing brought back the nostalgic feeling of undeniable balance and dynamic movement. Entranced by moving through mountains on technical terrain, the San Juans and nearby sandstone desert climbing became my training ground on stunning rock and ice. As I continue to develop my personal and professional love for the sport, you can find me traveling to incredible climbing venues. From the Black Canyon of the Gunnison to Yosemite Valley, and all over the West to hone my craft.
I began working for Mountain Trip’s local program in May, 2019, guiding the via ferrata, rock and ice. I hold a Wilderness First Responder, Avalanche Level 1, and Single Pitch Instructor certifications. I am also an Apprentice Rock Guide and will be heading up Denali’s West Buttress as an assistant guide this upcoming Alaska season.
If I’m not outdoors on a romp, you can find me teaching a physical therapy based style of pilates, baking tasty treats or scheming future objectives.
