Who inspires you in climbing? Why?
My friend Becca! Since we met in 2015, she’s been such a kind, generous, headstrong, and positive individual. There are not a lot of Canadian female student athletes in competition climbing and somehow she balances all of them so well. Her enduring positivity, tenacity, and drive are very inspiring.

I have a really hard time choosing one single person who inspires me! I’m honestly usually in awe of most high-performing athletes in any type of sport. I find that the psych is infectious.

Who inspires you outside sport? Why?
My friends as they live in the moment and tend to not stress the little things! In athletics, it’s easy to become hyper-focused on the minute details. I really like having the balance and other people to push me to focus on the bigger picture and to always have fun.

When I’m not climbing I’m probably either in the kitchen baking or adventuring in the outdoors. One day, when I don’t need calluses, I’d like to go back to surfing and push myself in that sport!

Train today to perform in a year

What message of hope would you share with our community in the mist of this pandemic?
Practice compassion towards yourself and others! It’s a difficult time for everyone in one way or another; emotionally, physically, politically, etc. Keep in touch with those around you, and use the resources you have to continue to engage with the world 🙂.
