A Little About Me

I’m a climber, athlete, model, and rock climbing instructor who lives on the road full-time in a van. I’ve been climbing for ten years and living on the road for five. Throughout my travels, I’ve visited so many beautiful places, met incredible folks, and I’ve done a ton of soul searching about myself as a woman of color while trying to navigate outdoor spaces.

More About Me

I’m a professional rock climber, rock climbing guide, and active lifestyle model with a passion for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the outdoor industry. Growing up in the Hudson Valley near the Gunks in New York State, I was introduced to climbing in college and quickly fell in love with the sport.

Living out of my car, I traveled the country and the world, climbing everywhere I could. In my travels, I found there were very few climbers who looked like me, so I wanted to change that. Now, I’m an active advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion in outdoor spaces.

In my time as a professional climber, guide, advocate, and model, I have worked with a number of organizations and publications, including National Geographic, Rivian, Daybreak Magazine, Women’s Bouldering, Teva, Visit South Idaho, Royal Gorge Region,

The North Face, Stanley, Citizen Watch, Brown Girls Climb, and She Moves Mountains.

As a writer, I’ve also shared my experiences and insights with others, contributing to a number of publications and platforms in the outdoor and climbing worlds. As a rock climbing guide, I’ve led women’s climbing retreats both domestically and internationally, empowering and inspiring other women to push their own limits and discover the joys of climbing.

I will continue to promote greater access and representation for underrepresented groups in the outdoor industry using my skills, passion, and platform to make a positive impact in the industry and in the lives of others. I’m excited to announce I’m starting a guiding company that holds international retreats for black and brown climbers.
