President/Treasurer

 I have been a climber and outdoor enthusiast for over 25 years. I have also been a social worker for 20 years.  My passion for protecting all things that cannot protect themselves has led me to my role on this board. I hope to support our mission, including brining climbing to our at-risk youth and  protecting our amazing climbing areas for years to come.

I see stewardship as proactively building relationships with land managers, local climbers, visiting climbers, and the general community to ensure that issues related to climbing impacts are addressed before they endanger climbing access. It is also working to minimize the impact that climbing has on natural areas through smart trail development and management, as well as cleanup events and outreach.

I started climbing in Western Massachusetts in 2009 and immediately fell in love with every aspect of climbing. I enjoy sport cragging, long moderate trad routes, hard bouldering, gym climbing, and even the occasional day on ice.

I wanted to serve on the TCC board to try to give back to the climbing community because I've gotten so much out of climbing. My personal points of interest lie in preserving and protecting the cliffs and mountains we all love so much.

My climbing started with modest beginnings. I began climbing at the university gym in Texas. I climbed in the gym for years before ever going outside. I slowly progressed to bouldering and sport climbing. Climbing brought me to Lake Tahoe 10 years ago and made this place home. The transition to old school, California granite was eye opening...to say the least.

I joined the Tahoe Climbing Coalition because I want to engage with our community. I see value in advocating for our climbing areas and working together as a group.
