Discipline: Climbing Team

ABOUT ME:

 

Born in France and raised in Northern California, my passion for climbing began when I was 8 years old. As a youth competition climber, I spent my childhood traveling to competitions and climbing outside. After taking time off to pursue university, I truly realized that climbing was my entire world and started working to build a life around climbing. My current goals are to get outside at every opportunity and to regularly send double-digit boulder problems. As a young mom, female working in tech, and athlete, I strive everyday to inspire others to achieve their personal goals no matter what obstacles are standing in their way. I love climbing hard, powerful boulder problems and giving it all I got. If my finger tips aren't raw and bleeding by the end of a climbing trip, I don't feel satisfied!
