Linnea and SO Jesse in Yosemite

I'm an avid backpacker, rock climber and explorer. The outdoors always remind me that the most important part of life is gratitude for the magnificence that we live in, so I try to get out as much as possible.

Rock Climbing Instruction


I've been a rock climber for 14 years and in 2003 began leading trips for the Stanford Alpine Club. I enjoy teaching gear placement, but my favorite is taking indoor climbers on their first outdoor trips. You can see my ticks on my Mountain Project profile.


I also taught rock climbing technique for Stanford University athetics in 2008. At the same time, I managed the university's climbing wall routesetting, which is the placement of plastic holds into designated paths up called routes. 

Volunteer Park Maintenance

On a fairly regular basis since 2012, I've worked with Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District's volunteer land management crew to maintain trails and prevent the spread of non-native invasive plant species.
