I am originally from Salt Lake City, Utah but I moved to Vancouver in 2015 to pursue my PhD in Clinical Forensic Psychology at Simon Fraser University (almost done!). To balance the stress of grad school I rock climb. I started climbing in 2013 and was immediately hooked. Currently I train for climbing roughly 5 days a week in the gym, but when the rain stops you will find me outside every chance I get. My first love is sport climbing, but I also get psyched to wrestle some boulders on occasion as well. This year I have a few projects selected in the upper 5.13 range for sport, and the V9/V10 grade for bouldering. You can find me sippin’ my booch between burns for that extra little boost ;)

Favourite Meal

I’ll eat pretty much anything, but just make sure it comes with fresh bread.

Favourite Kombucha Flavour

Do I have to choose? If I am hard pressed I would say ginger.
