I grew up in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. I was like most kids growing up and played organized sports in my community. I was in soccer leagues as a child and eventually found field hockey, which I played throughout high school and college. I always valued athleticism and made it a priority.

But once I graduated from college and my teammates naturally went their separate ways, I struggled to find that same sense of satisfaction. That’s when I discovered rock climbing. I began climbing at age 24 at the local Earth Treks gym in Towson, Maryland. Once I tried it, I was immediately hooked. The mental and physical challenges associated with rock climbing are so unique. In addition, I found a whole new society of people that were like-minded and welcoming. It was like I found my people and my place in this world.

During this time of rock climbing discovery, I was studying to become a doctor of physical therapy. I have always had a deep curiosity for human movement and wanted to soak up every bit of knowledge about the way our bodies work. I graduated from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 2014. I began my professional career in a large trauma center hospital in Baltimore, treating patients with a myriad of diagnosis: brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, cancer, multi-ortho/neurotrauma- you name it. It was an eye-opening experience to see so many people fighting for their lives everyday, yet rewarding to know that I was helping them to recover even if only in some small way. 

After that experience, I decided to follow my passion for the outdoors and moved to the small mountain town of Estes Park, Colorado, where I was one of only a few physical therapists in town. In Estes, I worked with outdoor athletes of all ability levels, helping them to recover from injury and return to activities they loved, whether it be hiking, climbing, snowshoeing, skiing, etc. I also had the opportunity to present guest lectures on Human Anatomy and Sports Medicine at Estes Park High School. In Denver, I obtained a certification in Dry Needling by the American Academy of Manipulative Therapy. Moving to this town is really what steered me into the lifestyle I have today. Surrounded by high alpine peaks, fresh air, and clean water, Estes Park is a post-card of beautiful mountain living. I absolutely loved my work, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on every climbing experience possible.
