How did your work with Ragged Mountain Sports come about?
I got into this work over seven years ago when I realized that one of the best ways to curb the climate crisis was to actively fight against fast fashion by encouraging mountain athletes to sell their well-loved gear and equipment.
What other interests do you have?
I am a competitive skimo (ski mountaineering) racer and ultra-runner. I’m also endlessly entertained by feminist theory, adventure-based nonfiction, pop hip-hop and loudly debating social justice phenomena over wine.
When was the last time you visited the CRMS campus?
Over a year ago…even though I live less than a mile away!
What’s a favorite memory of a CRMS faculty member?
Every outing with Kayo Ogilby. Tele team trips were always the very best.
