Becca was born and raised as the youngest of two brothers and a half-sister in a Jewish family in Pittsburgh, PA. Her love for expressing self, silliness and physicality in the outdoors began with high school summers spent on trail crews with the Student Conservation Association, leading her to earn a B.A. in Outdoor Leadership. Becca found a similar space for her expression on her first bouldering trip in 2010. Becca is an SPI and Apprentice Rock Guide working with Women’s Wilderness, a non-profit in Boulder, CO. She designs and leads climbing courses outside and in the gym to foster a sense of community that invites participants to express themselves and use climbing as a tool for personal development and mental strengthening. She is inspired by climbing as a means to foster awareness and deeper connections with ourselves, each other and the Earth.
1. Seeing Hip Hop Gone Wild on the big screen at the No Man’s Land Film Festival! The whole process: receiving the female filmmaker’s grant, co-creating a vision with filmmaker Henna Taylor to meld my passions of beatboxing, rap and climbing. (2018)
