Growing up in South Dakota, the eastern side, I was not exposed to climbing growing up but I was very active in track, volleyball and fastpitch softball. Before I moved to Denver, and after being encouraged to put on some climbing shoes and try a boulder problem, I have now been climbing for 5 years. I love to travel to local bouldering areas, as well as areas in Utah, Nevada, and eventually California! I am also an event, wedding and outdoor photographer, who still takes time to climb, spend time with my family, friends, hiking/backpacking, road trips, and good coffee. Over the past year, I have also been a brand ambassador for BeastFingers, which I love being a part of! And I recently became an assistant climbing coach and team coordinator at Earth Treks Climbing Centers in Golden, CO for the climbing team.
