I've been climbing for over a decade now and still loving it. My favorite climbing area is El Potrero Chico for the accessibility and epic route length. I'd love to be on the board and contribute to the community that has made me feel so welcome. I'm currently on a board for my company's giving arm and hope to someday work for a non-profit. Having the experience of being on the MN Co-op board would be a great step towards my goals. Plus I'm extremely organized and motivated to make the Co-op the best place it can be for our community!

I've been climbing for nearly 10 years now. Co-op member/access holder since 2015 and volunteer since 2017. The Co-op and community helps me feel and become stronger, physically and mentally. I appreciate all the hard work and devotion of those that made this place for us. If elected I would do my best sustain and build our cooperative, and to help others find and acquire the same comfort and strength I have found here.

I’ve been with the Co-op for a few years now and would love to be a part of the community even more. Climbing has been a large focus throughout the last four years for me, bringing many great people into my life and teaching me a lot about myself. I’d love to help start beginner workshops, mini comps, and community day trips to climb or even clean the beautiful parks we climb in.

My first experience with the Co-op community was at a backyard wall fundraising session and I have been climbing at the Co-op since (with intermittent periods away from MN). I value the commitment level of the people who created, and continue, to make this space an important asset to the community - I feel now is an opportunity to give my time to ensure the Co-op is a sustaining model that the community will continue to call “home."

I have been apart of the Co-op community since 2013 and have been on the board for the last 2 years. During this time, I transitioned from a random psyched climber being at the Co-op during odd hours of the night, into an active member of the Co-op and MN climbing community. Now, I am more passionate and dedicated to continue serving our like-minded community of climber folk to ensure the Co-op is sustainable and positive place for all of us to call our own.
