My favorite thing about Arizona…

are the warm winters.  The weather is beautiful and I love being able to be outside year round.


I’m listening to…

everything on the radio at the moment.  My music taste is diverse and I love listening to many genres of music.

My family…

means the world to me.  Their support has helped me tremendously in my climbing career and life.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Debbie Macomber.  I have become addicted to her romance novels!

One thing I cannot live without…

is my climbing shoes.  I spend more time in them than out of them.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a forensic scientist.  Helping to solve a crime through the use of science always appealed to me as a child.

I’m inspired by…

all athletes.  It takes a lot of hard work to play a sport.  Every athlete is dedicated and motivated.

The one person who motivates me is…

my climbing friends.  They always push me to perform my best with their encouragement, while also challenging me at the same time.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to have less stray animals.  I am an avid animal lover and hope that all animals can be part of a loving family.

The perfect day would be…

spent on a tropical island where I can split my time between climbing, playing in the ocean, and relaxing on the beach.  I love being near the water.

My first job was…

a professional rock climber.

My favorite escape…

is a good book.  I love getting lost in a fictional world.

My life…

is incredible.  I love seeing the new twists and turns I encounter each day, it is an adventure!

I’m currently working on…

balancing college and climbing.  I am working very hard in each area and am proud that I am able to do both.

Always…

do what makes you happy!

Never…

put yourself down.  Don’t be your own worst enemy.

Favorite Quote…

”We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars” –Oscar Wilde

Biggest Dream…

is to be remembered as someone who helped make climbing a mainstream sport.    Climbing is wonderful and I want everyone to have the same opportunities that I do. 

My Pet Peeve(s)…

is when I stub my toe in my climbing shoes.  It hurts way worse than a normal toe stubbing because the shoes are so tight.
