I am currently a 22 year old student, youth climbing coach, and professional climber. I am in my senior year at DePaul University as a Bioscience major with hopes to go to graduate school in the future. When I am not studying, I am coaching a competitive climbing team for kids (ages 5-19). The rest of my time and energy is dedicated to my own climbing, both as a competitor and an outdoor climber. I started climbing when I was 7 years old and instantly fell in love with this movement based sport. I think that the part of climbing I am most drawn to is the idea that there will always be something harder, something undone. I am extremely competitive by nature and the fact that there are endless challenges in climbing excites me.
