Sunny is a free spirit and adventurer.  Formerly a hard-charging strategy consultant, she turned her back on material possessions and career shortly after turning 30 and has been living in an Astrovan to run and climb full-time ever since.  

Sunny's overarching passion is to be active and push her limits in the side- and backcountry, spanning a multitude of sports from big-wall climbs over multi-day paddling trips to 100 milers and everything in between.  Her specialty is the high altitude endurance realm; she holds speed records on Aconcagua and on the Annapurna Circuit.

As a storyteller, she draws on her experiences and adventures as a professional mountain athlete to connect with her audience through captivating visuals and engaging presentations - focusing on topics such as transformation, goal setting, perseverance, female empowerment and systematic decision-making in high risk environments. 

Sunny is a photographer for Aurora Photos whose images have appeared (among others) in National Geographic, Outside Online, Forbes, TrailRun Mag and print ads for brands like adidas Outdoor and Metolius Climbing.  

Sunny proudly represents Mountain Hardwear and Backpackers Pantry as as well as serving as an ambassador for LuminAid
