Izzy grew up in the heart of NYC but found a deep connection to climbing and snowboarding when she moved to Vermont for college. After college, Izzy spent several years working for the Outward Bound School in Colorado, honing her craft as an education and expedition leader. Along the way, she began to pursue more guiding-centric education and work opportunities.
These days, Izzy spends most of the year guiding alpine climbs and backcountry skiing trips in the Tetons. In the “shoulder seasons”, you will find her working and playing in Moab, City of Rocks and on Mt. Hood.
