Chris has an intense reverence for nature and a thirst for adventure. She’s most at peace in the outdoors and considers a successful year one where she spends more nights sleeping under the stars than under a ceiling. She’s scaled peaks and run rivers all over the US and in exotic lands like Nepal, Kenya, Tanzania, Thailand, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica and Iceland.

Chris is passionate about using her words and imagery to document these adventures and to bring attention to important issues.  She now works as the senior editor of Elevation Outdoors Magazine and is a freelance writer and photographer with works printed in publications including Climbing Magazine, Mother Jones, National Geographic Adventure, Filmmaker, Outside Online, WEND, & Women’s Adventure Magazine

Filled with a growing knowledge, unceasing energy, and the passion to make an impact, Chris plans to continue telling important stories and protecting wild places.
