Stephanie grew up in the green of the Pacific Northwest and recently left Washington for the climbing in Colorado. When Steph wasn’t stuck in the library studying in college, she spent most of her time outside running, backpacking, or climbing with friends. Steph fell in love with the challenges that being outside brings, and with the outdoor community culture.

What Steph loves most is being able to share the outdoors with people who are unfamiliar with it, and teaching those skills that make outdoor experiences more accessible.

Steph recently graduated from Western Washington University with a B.S. in chemistry.  She is a Wilderness First Responder, and works as a backpacking guide and single pitch instructor.
