Amy was born and raised on the coastal shores of Rhode Island and grew up developing a love for the outdoors through surfing and paddling down the river in her grandparent’s backyard. When she tied in for her very first rock climb in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, her passion for the outdoors grew exponentially.
At age 18, eager to explore the rest of the United States, she packed up for a traverse of the country on a greyhound bus. Her final destination was Tucson, where she spent a month climbing all over the Santa Catalina Mountains. It was then that she found a love for the southwest.
Amy is currently finishing up two Bachelors of Arts degrees in Education and Outdoor Program Administration at Prescott College. She is the Vice President of the Prescott Climbers’ Coalition and is a founding staff member of the Northern Arizona Adaptive Sports Association where she hopes to make rock climbing an accessible sports for people with disabilities.
