Hey Climbers!

I have completed the coaching program through Boulder Co and am an avid climber myself.

My main focus as a coach is to help you become a stronger, well rounded climber all while having fun and developing enthusiasm for the sport.

I am passionate about seeing the women’s climbing community flourish and believe I have the skillset and enthusiasm to facilitate this. I have witnessed too many women doubt their climbing ability and I would love to empower women to believe they are strong and capable.

I also have a particular passion to improve the youth development of climbing in New Zealand so that we can hopefully see more and more New Zealand climbers on the international stage.

Outside of climbing coaching, I love to train and compete in bouldering. Additionally I am an outdoor enthusiast, participating in paragliding, mountaineering, tramping and adventure racing. I am currently studying to be a paramedic at AUT, and will complete my bachelors degree in 2023.

Over the past year, safe and effective performance training cycles have piqued my interest and I have noticed a huge improvement in my own climbing ability after following my own researched training programme. I now want to use what I’ve learnt to enable you to develop your technique and skills as well.

I look forward to getting to know you and helping you work towards your climbing goals!

If you happen to see me around the gym, please come over and introduce yourself, I would love to meet you and connect!
