Why do you #ChooseAdventure?

I #chooseadventure because it revitalizes me. There is nothing more humbling or awe-inspiring to me than getting outside!

Adventure makes you feel...

Alive and empowered!

Favorite type of adventure?

Climbing, pretty much anything — from rock climbing to mountaineering to hiking

Favorite adventure to date?

Hiking the John Muir Trail and then staying in Yosemite National Park for a week to climb.

What is your next adventure planned?

My honeymoon — My partner and I are going back to the Sierras to hike the Sierra High Route. I’m particularly excited because about 60% of this 200 trek will be off-trail!

Your ultimate adventure bucket list is?

Selling all my earthly possessions, living out of a truck camper, and traveling across the United States

The person/people who inspire me most to take an adventure...

The people who most inspire me most are the women I have been privileged enough to teach outdoors skills.

Watching them grow and come into their own in the outdoors inspires me to keep pushing my own boundaries.

Adventure item you can't live without?

My Osprey Kyte 36L backpack. This beautiful baby carried me through the John Muir Trail and has been with me on almost every approach to my favorite climbs.

How can people follow your adventures?
