Michelle is a CA native who got into climbing over a decade ago while working at REI. After traveling around a bit she landed in Western MA along with her wife and now 5 year old daughter. Michelle recently made the professional jump to fully pursue her love of the sport by starting The Climbing Connection, a business that builds and facilitated social emotional growth through rock climbing.
I’ve been climbing for 3 years now! I’m currently in business school with the dream of opening up my own retreat for people with autoimmune diseases. I got into because I was diagnosed with Lupus and Dysautonomia and climbing is the only thing that brings me joy and allows me to forget the pain I’m in.
