I’m a memoirist, public speaker, and activist in the movement to end sexual violence. I believe when we tell our stories, we help others see the truth in theirs, too.

I live two miles above sea level in the mountain valley of Leadville, Colorado. Trails are my religion. My latest writing project is about how climbing Colorado’s tallest peaks – and later, summits around the world – taught me to cope with chronic pain (a daily headache disorder).
