I started climbing sometime in 2017/2018 and life really has never been the same. I’m especially drawn to the outdoors and deeply appreciate that rock climbing has introduced me to a myriad of destinations and many different people. In 2022, I joined the Tufas route setting team have continued to develop my climbing and critical thinking skills in this capacity. Outside of rock climbing, I balance working as a speech-language pathologist in clinical and research settings and navigating a return to graduate school.
