Why did you join The Spot?
After moving to boulder about a year ago I quickly found The Spot. I felt an overall welcoming atmosphere and jumped at the opportunity to be part of the team!

What do you love about working at The Spot?
I love the community, the shared passion for climbing, and the connections I make with everyone.

Why do you climb?
Climbing is a form of meditation. Climbing forces me to be in the moment and only focus on the next move… everything else in life is put on hold. That and the physicality and movement of climbing is what draws me in.

Where do you hope to be in 5 years?
That is a hard thing to predict, but I hope to be climbing, surrounded by friends, centered, and still hungry to progress in my passions. I also hope to have met my “career” goal of attaining and working as an RN. But who knows, maybe I’ll have moved to Spain where I’ll be siesta “ing” and climbing!

Anything else you’d like to tell folks?
Other than that I would want to express how happy I am to be a part of the team at The Spot. Community is the basis of what makes The Spot such an exuberant place, so please, come say what up!
