When I joined The Mountaineers, people used to ask me, "Have you ever climbed a mountain before?". I wanted to put this to rest and enjoy the maximum time in the woods. I wanted to break stereotypes by inviting and showing ways for more people to enjoy the outdoors. I enjoy bringing diverse crowds into the mountains to share the awesome outdoors of the Pacific Northwest."
