Head Coach, since 2002. Part of the US National Climbing Team Coaching Staff.I grew up in a climbing family. We were members at the original Vertical World from its inception. I started taking sport climbing seriously when I was 10 years old and competed from ’89-’93 before there were climbing teams or coaches or even many youth competitors.
I began coaching a small group at our gyms and built it into what it is today. I’m thankful every day for this opportunity. Not many people are given the chance to change lives and make a difference. I think of this every time the kids come through the door. We are training climbers and building community, but most importantly we are building a foundation for these kids that will allow them to be successful in all aspects of their lives. The skills they are learning here translate directly to most obstacles and situations you will see. I am proud to be a part of that, and I am grateful to be given the chance.
