If there is a technical skill you have wanted to learn or practice, I'm your girl. One-on-one we can cater the lesson specifically to your pace and your goals. I love teaching to individuals or small groups because then all students have an opportunity to ask questions and receive personal feedback on practices and intermediate goal-setting that will enhance their unique journey of building a repertoire of skills and getting their butts along with the rest of their body OUTSDE. I offer a wide range of teaching, from how to use a compass to ultra light backpacking - if there is something you are curious about, ASK. If I can't help you I will direct to some other badass lady who can.

Because I don't work with any outfitter, I cannot provide gear outside of a standard rack and 'group gear' (tent, stove, etc). This means you will need your own or the lending of a loving friend. I love going over gear lists and packing lists, so this too is a part of the process I can offer advice for. From an afternoon at the crag to a week in the wild, let's go play!
