Meet The Team
I love the outdoors and feel connected with people who search for it and enjoy it in a loving and respectful way.
I have climbed and explored mountains since I was 14.
Teaching and imparting instructions in Rock Climbing, Rappelling, Canyoneering, Ice climbing, Mountaineering and kayaking for over 24 years.
Along the way have met a great deal of amazing people, explored the mountains where I can find them and have learned that the best "goal" to have is to have fun and enjoy every single minute.
I've been climbing for over 3 years. My first time on the rock was with CAG at a beginner's outing and I fell in love. Took an anchor setting class and set out on my own.
Since then I have had wilderness first aid training, CPR training, and recently took AMGA's single pitch instructor course. I started helping CAG with classes about a year ago and absolutely love sharing the joy with others. Showing people how to enjoy nature to the fullest while respecting it is very rewarding for me and hearing back from clients who enjoyed themselves always makes my day.
My favorite climbs are traditional multi-pitch routes, Zoo View at Moore's Wall being my favorite climb so far. I love pushing myself and I hope to gain Rock Guide certification eventually, which involves leading 5.11 traditional climbs, so you can find me training in my free time. I look forward to meeting and climbing with you!
