Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Used to be an engineer; quit three times before she finally said, "I can't do this anymore."
After climbing her first wall, she started spending every second of her free time at climbing walls, going on climbing trips.
Liked that in climbing, you always set a goal, then you figure out the best moves you can make to get you there.
After climbing an 8,000 foot peak in Pakistan and summiting, she knew she wanted to devote her life to climbing.
Bought an indebted expedition business; said like climbing a mountain, they were starting at the base, had to build it up.
Says she's faced sexism; sometimes guys "have issues" with a woman leading them, boyfriends got jealous she was better than them.
Hopes to keep improving her climbing, the way she runs her business, and the way she treats people until the day she dies.
Says the best part about climbing is the sense of accomplishment at the end, but also the views on the way up.
