I'm a Colorado native born without the lower half of my left arm but it hasn't stoped me from much. I'm a creative director and producer by trade, the founder of SheLift and an avid outdoorsgirl. Wanting to find love, I signed up to become a bachelorette on ABC’s The Bachelor in 2013. Though I didn’t find love on the show, I realized, that before all else, I needed to love myself. After becoming a fan favorite on the show and connecting with millions of viewers across the world I saw an opportunity to use my platform in a more meaningful way.
Striving to share my love for outdoor adventure and mentorship, I started SheLift, an organization that empowers young women born with physical differences to get outside and conquer their personal mountains. Today, I spend my time outdoors skiing to rock climbing, canyoneering, camping, backpacking, you name it, I do it all in the pursuit of showing other girls what’s possible.
