Operations Manager

With physical fitness and a love of the outdoors shaping a great deal of my personality growing up, it was really only a matter of time before both climbing and yoga became an everyday part of my life.  Climbing was really introduced to me a few years ago by an avid climber I was living with in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and my love for the sport has really taken off since moving back to Ontario two years ago.  After summoning the courage and getting a handful of beginner yoga classes under my belt about a year ago it was easy to see the benefits of making it a normal part of my routine, and I look forward to taking my practice to the next level at ARC.

When I’m not at ARC you’ll find me exploring the expansive beauty around Sudbury either by foot or canoe, taking my dogs with me every step of the way. I also have a huge passion for gardening and any time I’m at home I spend the majority outside reshaping my front yard into a vegetable oasis.

I’ve spent the last 8 years planting trees and living the bush-life all over northern Ontario and into parts of Nova Scotia, spending several winters on the east coast while taking in everything the Maritimes have to offer. I committed to Sudbury full time in the spring of 2014 and was really pumped to find out that ARC was under construction and well under way to becoming the climbing hub that Sudbury had been missing for so long.  After getting to know the staff a bit it’s obvious I’ve made a great decision in joining the ARC team and can’t wait to take my climbing and yoga to new heights!
