Currently based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, I am an avid boulderer who loves lowball roofs. I discovered my love for rock climbing and La Sportiva shoes during medical school in Cleveland, Ohio. I climbed outside nearly every weekend at Cooper’s Rock in West Virginia until I was diagnosed with advanced stage lymphoma. For nearly a year, I was unable to fully use my arms and legs as I endured painful surgeries and toxic chemotherapy. I decided that climbing would be my reason to continue through the pain. During recovery, I slowly regained my strength and returned to the gym. The idea of returning to climbing (along with family and friends) helped me through the roughest part of my life. I’m grateful to be climbing more than ever! Now, I am a physician who specializes in pathology; and I boulder outside regularly around NM or at Hueco Tanks, my favorite climbing destination.
