My family moved to the PNW from the Midwest when I was a young child. Growing up in Bellevue, Washington my family was not the outdoorsy type and I can’t recall my family taking me and my brother camping or doing anything outdoors related. As I got older, my thirst for the outdoors became undeniable and I started to hike every chance that I got! Within my first year of hiking regularly, I met a lot of like-minded people and ended up doing Mount St. Helens, Adams and Muir in a matter of months!
I am very grateful for the fulfillment the outdoors has given me, but am fully aware that my active lifestyle would not be possible without good standing health. I will be attempting a summit of Mount Baker in August of 2017 with Peaks of Life with the purpose of raising money for Seattle Children’s uncompensated care fund. 100% of these proceeds will go to children who are in need of medical assistance and otherwise would not have access to healthcare. Please consider donating today and help make a difference in a child’s life!
Unlike most people around me I'm rather new to mountaineering. I started in the spring of 2016. I'm a fashion photographer and as you can imagine it's a very competitive and stressful job. I work night and day and travel a fair amount.
Following a romantic breakup last year I suddenly wanted to live a little. My ex was very much into the outdoors so I decided to give it a try.
My first mountain was Adams. I remember sitting on a rock at six in the morning at the Lunch Counter (base camp) drinking my coffee and looking at the mountain, feeling the brisk mountain air, listening to the silence and … for the first time I felt grounded and part of the world instead of ever floating in the complexity above. I was at peace and … I was sold. Following Adams I summited nearly 20 peaks last year alone.
Oftentimes when I climb I think about people who can't - people who struggle with illness and disabilities and my heart sinks. I love Peaks of Life because of the people and the cause - I climb responsibly and I'm able to climb to help those who can't.
Please sponsor me and help me support this great cause!
