Kia ora koutou!
I am born and raised out on Tāmaki Makaurau’s west coast, among the black sand and wild waves of Muriwai beach. I have been a coach for the kids and youth classes here at Boulder Co since they began in May 2022.
I have worked with young people as an educator in science, mathematics, and sustainability for over 6 years. Applying these skills to coaching young people in climbing continues to be one of my favourite and most rewarding challenges. I have always enjoyed seeing people have that ‘Aha! I can do this!’ moment when they unlock a new skill or level of confidence. These are the moments I try to foster in my climbing classes.
Creating a community where we can lift each other up and learn from one another is also one of my main focusses when coaching. I came to climbing in 2019 after stumbling across its increasing presence in the online world. I have had a steadily growing love for the sport ever since.
I hope to see you or your young one at Boulder Co sometime soon! If you see me around the gym, please come and say hello!
