I grew up in rural Kyoto. While studying in the UK I discovered rock climbing and the Scottish winters. Since then my passion expanded to alpine climbing and ski mountaineering, spending a few years based between France, U.S. Canada and Japan.
When I’m not on Denali, which I have guided Denali six times over the past four years with Mountain Trip, I’m guiding in the North Cascades, ski guiding in Hokkaido, Japan or climbing and skiing with my husband in the Eastern High Sierra and Tahoe area.
