Mandy first learned how to climb at the University of Pittsburgh over ten years ago. Climbing instantly sparked her interest and changed her career path. To her, climbing is both a form of moving meditation and also a way to challenge herself physically and mentally. Perhaps even more than climbing for own pursuits, Mandy loves to introduce people to the sport that has impacted her life so positively. While the North Cascades of Washington State will always hold a special place in her heart, she is eager to explore the stunning seaside cliffs of the Brac. Aside from climbing, Mandy pursues mountaineering, backpacking, paddle boarding, and yoga. She is a certified yoga teacher and an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor.
