Do you collect anything?
Animals and garden plants.
What is your most unusual talent?
I can sleep out bad weather in a tent for days and still be happy with life.
What is the scariest thing you have ever done?
Adopt a three legged dog, sight unseen. Best scary idea ever!
Why do you like working with Gnarly?
I like working with companies who don’t just care about the end result, but how to get there.
Outside of your respective sport, what are you most proud of?
It’s still within the sport, but if I was told tomorrow I’d never climb again, I’d still be working hard to improve access to climbing for people with disabilities. Climbing has had such a profound impact on my life, and there are still people that don’t have gyms or other facilities that are welcoming to people with disabilities. I aim to fix that.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Mac and cheese.
Who is your hero? Why?
Captain Marvel. For obvious reasons.
Any advice for aspiring athletes?
Don’t be afraid to switch it up and take breaks. Everyone wants to follow their passion, but it can also consume you both in body and in mind. Always spend a big chunk of time doing something else, and don’t feel bad about it, even if it’s just a quality Netflix binge.
I do eaaaaaarly morning HIIT classes and drink the BCAA’s with caffeine during the workout. That both kicks my system and gets me going so I can skip my coffee. I love the Vanilla Vegan Mixed with almond milk, at any time, so creamy and delicious!
