Kelsey is a pizza lover, route setter, and nerd living in New Orleans, LA. Last August, Kelsey helped open the city’s only rock climbing gym. She spends her days pretending she knows how to run a business at New Orleans Boulder Lounge (NOBL), and trying to build a climbing community in a city below sea level. With a brand new climbing community, Kelsey has been an advocate for women-centric activities at NOBL in hopes of creating a welcoming and less intimidating environment for everyone who is interested in climbing. She’s also down to smash the patriarchy – starting with climbing.
