Heather quit her day job as a veterinarian two years ago to travel and play on rocks full-time. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, she has an innate affinity toward leopard print, sparkles, and anything pink. Despite her new title of professional rock climber, she never passes up an opportunity to wear heels or hustle a game of pool.
Heather started projecting difficult routes five years ago and has been addicted ever since. She enjoys climbing all disciplines, but has mainly focused on pushing her personal limits with sport climbing. While holding down her full-time career, she climbed numerous 5.13s, including a 13d at Mt. Potosi, and since quitting her job has been able to climb two 5.14s, both of which were first female ascents.
She and her husband Chris now call Boulder their home base, but recently have busted out of the bubble to travel and climb throughout Europe. Chris is as crazy as she is and has showed her how to live and love life to its fullest.
When she’s not climbing, she enjoys vegetarian cooking, yoga, hiking, riding horses, reading, snuggling with four-legged furry things, and any excuse for an all night dance party.
