I have been working at EAC since 2016 and love the friendly community at the climbing wall and in the gym! I have been very passionate about rock climbing and route setting since I was 6 years old. I was introduced to climbing while living in Arizona as a child. The local climbing gym taught me all about rock climbing and route setting. I continued climbing on and off throughout the years but really got serious about training after high school. Now, I am the Head Route Setter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I also route set at Urbana Boulders and, of course, Chicago Athletic Clubs! I hope to further my knowledge and experience in route setting in the future. I have also taught a variety of climbing clinics in the past which helped me realize I wanted to become a teacher! I currently study Early Childhood Education at UIUC and plan to become a Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten teacher. I also plan to climb and route set as much as I can on weekends and school breaks!
