A Centennial State native, my love for climbing and skiing mountains began in 1998 with my arrival to Aspen. I finished climbing the 14ers in 2005, and in 2010 became the first woman to ski them all. Later that same year, I completed climbing the Centennials, notching a few ski descents along the way.

 

By 2015, along with Ted and Chris Davenport I had skied those same peaks, the 100 tallest mountains in the state. In 2011 and 2016 I was honored to be nominated for the Sportswomen of Colorado Award for ski mountaineering.

In 2016 I was nominated for National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year for Ski Mountaineering, along with my husband Ted and ski partner Chris Davenport, for completing our goal to climb and ski the 100 tallest mountains in Colorado.

I was twice nominated for Colorado Sportswoman of the Year in Ski Mountaineering. First in 2011 for being the first woman to ski all of Colorado’s 14,000 foot peaks, and again in 2016 after completing our Centennial Ski Project.
