Who are your favorite climbers?
Shauna Coxsey, Alex Johnson and Megan Mascarenas all constantly inspire me to climb harder and have fun with it!
Favorite hobbies outside of climbing:
Dog-spotting, singing completely out of tune during car rides, watching/re-watching my favorite TV Series. (Seinfeld, Breaking Bad, Adventure Time, Futurama and Rick & Morty)
Something unique about you:
“I have two little pet rats, named Pinky and Algernon. Shortly after I got them, I brought them with me on a climbing trip to Rifle, in which they appropriated got the name “Crats” (crag rats!)
Why did you get into climbing?
I did climbing summer camps and went to the climbing gym occasionally on the weekend when I was a kid. However, I started climbing regularly when I joined a local team and began competing in the youth circuit in 2009.
What style of climbing do you specialize in?
Bouldering is my absolute favorite, but I also do a bunch of sport climbing, and have recently gotten into trad climbing!
Where is your favorite place to climb?
“Mt. Lemmon is my hometown favorite, but I also adore Bishop and anywhere I’m competing!”
Tell us about your most memorable climb
When I was 13, I did my first multi-pitch climb. When I was repelling off, I got a chunk of my hair (maybe a fifth of my head) caught in the grigri, all the way to the roots. I was somewhere from 100-200 feet off the ground and I thought I'd have to rip it out to get down. Luckily, I ended up getting it out, but ever since then, there has been a running joke about me getting my hair stuck in grigris. (Which happens a little to often).
