AMGA-Certified Single-Pitch Instructor and AMGA Apprentice Rock, Alpine and Splitboard Guide
Izzy grew up in the heart of NYC but found a passion for climbing when she moved to Vermont for college. While balancing in-classroom education and outdoor adventure, Izzy started working for a local climbing gym and guiding service and for her college’s outdoor program. That road led her west to work for the Colorado Outward Bound School, teaching mountaineering, skiing and rock climbing programs year round. After several years of extended wilderness expeditions, she has found herself in the Tetons to take people on their high alpine adventures.

Jess’s background is in outdoor education at Colorado Outward Bound School, leading rock climbing trips and coaching the climbing team at Colorado Rocky Mountain School, as well as teaching adaptive skiing for Challenge Aspen. Jess is excited to share her love for all things rock climbing with others, from helping new climbers feel comfortable on the rock to working with more experienced climbers to expand their skill sets and tackle more challenging objectives. Jess’s favorite local climbing area is Eldorado Canyon, but there is nothing she loves quite as much as the splitter cracks in Bear Ears National Monument.
