A Centennial State native, my love for climbing and skiing mountains began in 1998 with my arrival in 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.
