I spent over 10 years working as a freelance media producer and educator in the St. Louis area. After moving to New York City in 2012, I began to fall in love with the outdoors exploring parks and trails in New York State. During a 2016 vacation to Colorado, I experienced rock climbing for the first time and it was love at first climb. Since then, I have been immersed in the climbing community; volunteering with Young Women Who Crush and Brown Girls Climb. I recently began an apprenticeship developing sport routes in Colorado and completed a routesetting apprenticeship with GP81 and The Try Hard Crew. I'm on the board of Rise Outside and the Torne Valley Climbers' Coalition.
In 2020, I created Black Girls Boulder, a climbing club designed to introduce more Black women to climbing outdoors and to provide physical and emotional support for beginner and competitive climbers through education and community.
