I was recently featured on Ken Turley’s blog, Mill Creek Report. In the article, he outlines my climbing career including the high points and the low points. It is a super flattering piece, and it also reminds me of how hard I have had to work! I have had 3 finger injuries, one of which landed me in surgery, I have had the birth of my son and the trials of balancing a career, a family and supporting a husband as he pursues a PHD. Also, I am old by competition climber standards. At ABS Nationals this year, my old age of 31 was mentioned multiple times… alas
I don’t live the life of a sponsored pro climber. That sounds pretty sweet, I admit. But instead, I work 40 hours per week, and I have a family! My husband and I sacrifice quite a lot to pursue our love for climbing, but ultimately, it is worth it. I have lofty goals, it is true, but I love working toward those goals, and I am so fortunate to have a supportive pit crew including my husband and son, my friends, and of course, my coach Kris Hampton of Power Company Climbing.
