    I am an Emergency Room nurse in Hilo Hawaii.

    I grew up in a small town in Colorado where I learned to ski, hike, and rock climb.

    My personal sport of choice is running. I love the escape it gives me and the feeling of working up a good sweat and the personal triumph of adding that extra mile under your belt.

    I also dance at a local studio- though I’ve been off the dance floor due to a knee injury – I cannot wait to get back!

    I also greatly enjoy weight lifting, cliff jumping, surfing, and paddle boarding. I had also been part of the local roller derby team prior to becoming a nurse.

    This past summer, I went white water rafting in Zambia down the Zambezi River and bungee jumped off the Victoria Falls bridge. Definitely recommend for the adventure seeker :)

    About me: I grew up on a farm outside Boulder, CO. I lived in Washington State during most of my 20s where I fell in love with rock climbing, hiking, swing dancing and yoga. I love to be outside, especially in the sunshine.

    My personal caption: “I’m so over it.”
    I have been pole vaulting for 4 years now and am on my quest to becoming the best I can be in my sport. My goal is to go as far and as high as I can with my pole vault career which is good for me because I am still quite young for the sport. Most professionals are in their late 20’s while I am only 18. I love the rush of soaring over the bar and competing while doing something to which I am 100% dedicated.

    Day job: Life saver (nurse)

    Super hero power: Day maker!

    I am: an explorer extraordinaire.

    My story: Mother Nature provided a trail. I followed it. Most beautiful site I have ever seen…but I wanted more. Left everything I had brought at the top of the cliff and jumped. Today was about exploring. Barefooted and brave, I climbed up rocks and swam through unknown waters. I had the spirit of the island with me. In the end it occurred to me. My life is wonderful…all because I jumped.

    -Reach for the Heavens-

    My goal this year was to push myself to do something I have never done before. I decided to climb Mt. Saint Helens in Washington State. My life as a registered nurse keeps me pretty active but I always want to try the next challenge. I felt really good about the success and hope that next year brings new thrills !
