Maria has been climbing in the Gunks since 2015 and moved up to the area full-time in 2020 to spend more time in her favorite place! In addition to all the physical benefits of climbing in the beautiful Gunks, she is grateful to have climbing as a way to explore fear and anxiety. She’s passionate about supporting all climbers on their individual climbing journeys and welcoming all to our crags.
Maria brings non-profit leadership, fundraising, and partnership experience to the GCC Board. She holds an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Outside of climbing, Maria is a dedicated meditation practitioner and active in her mindfulness community. She also is a proud Burner, who’s been giving out dusty hugs since 2013.
