I started climbing 3 years ago when my sister purchased us an intro to belay class down in Maryland. Being terrified of heights made me reluctant to go but I was quickly bit by the climbing bug and have been climbing ever since (sans pandemia lockdown). I love cheering my fellow climbers on when I can and love the community that comes with our beloved Tufas. I am passionate about creating a welcoming and inclusive space for all underrepresented peoples and work to create a gym where everyone feels empowered to be their best self.
