Virginia | Rock Climber
  • Whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, Skiing, mountain biking, ice climbing
  • Spotify discover. I know it is not a band but I can’t tell you how much I love discovering new music and this is what Spotify does for me. Right now I am really digging on “The Ghost of Paul Revere” “Wolfie’s just fine” and “Run River North”
“Finding the adventure in everything I do. Full stop.”

What are you looking for in a Network?

Likes, lots of likes… A network that provides opportunities to tell my or another persons story is what I look for. The empowerment to get out to the fringes of society to show the grit that one might possess.

What events do you attend?

The occasional adventure sports festival or race (ie. Gauley fest, Craggin Classic, adventure races) Juggling a work/life balance makes this very inconsistent.

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

I have a couple of really quality mentors and most all of them can be found within my company. In particular our Executive Director I find is a very positive role model for finding balance in life. As a father himself he portrays to me the importance of making time for priorities and work is not always top of that list. Making time for family, self, and others is a recipe for a healthy life.

Do you create/co-produce your own video content?

Very little.

Do you play video games?

Nope. Don’t have time for that shit.

Do you belong to any charities or non-profits, do volunteer work?

I work for a non-profit. My full time job is to enrich the lives of veterans with an organization called Team Red, White,and Blue.

What are the top 5 brands you’d like to work with?

Black Diamond, Arc’Teryx, Patagonia, Pyranha Kayaks, Any mountain bike brand (I ride specialized currently but would sell out 😉
