San Francisco Bay Area Outreach

I was born and raised in Santa Monica, California and moved up to the Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley – and I’ve loved the Bay Area so much I’ve stayed here ever since! In my free time I love being active, and traveling and visiting new parts of the world. I’ve been climbing since January 2017, so I’m really new to the sport, and have really enjoyed being a part of the climbing community so far. My main sport is trail running and I’ve found climbing to be a fantastic complement to running – and has really helped me get stronger mentally & physically! I’m especially interested in meeting badass climbers because my main introduction to climbing was through the male lens, and I think that when we connect and build community, we really lift each other up.
