How long have you been an athlete with La Sportiva?
First year on the Team, hopefully not my last.

To share my passion for climbing with younger athletes and women who are new to the sport. When I finish medical school, I want to travel the world, climbing and providing medical care in areas that need it most.
Do you have a claim to fame?
I make awesome homemade cards! (Take that Hallmark!)
Do you have any vices?
Well, none I'm guilty for having.... I like ice cream :)
What makes you tick as a climber and in the real world?
Building relationships with people by teaching them how to rock climb. I love how climbing can be an individual and team sport. It's a lot like the medical field.
What drives you to climb? The money? The groupies? The fame? What?
Money in climbing? That's why I'm studying medicine. Just kidding!

Pride and Prejudice
Do you have any nicknames? Explain:
No nicknames. Any suggestions?

I turn into a pumpkin at 10pm... so, not long.
If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be?
Does it have to be a state? How about a country...maybe Australia!

A spinach wrap with home-made black bean hummus, veggies and gouda!
If you could hook up a thought monitor to your head, would you see pictures, hear words or would music be playing?
Lots and lots of lists, medical terminology and Goljan pathology (look him up).
What really scares you about climbing?
If your life was made into a movie, what would it be called?
Where would you live if it could be anywhere in the world?
Somewhere warm, in Europe. Maybe Barcelona, so I'd be near the ocean and great climbing.
Have no food or have no gasoline?
No gas. I have a bicycle.
Do you wish you had sexier feet?
No way, they're a great conversation starter.
