Quinn grew up in the icy flat-lands of Minnesota. She was introduced by chance to rock climbing at a young age and has completely embraced the physical and mental aspects of the sport. For 20 years she has been traveling the U.S and beyond, exploring summits and valleys. Climbing, hiking, practicing yoga, and laughing throughout the beautiful nooks of the world. She is a certified Wilderness EMT, holds a Master’s Degree in Educational Psychology, as well as a teaching certificate in the state of Colorado.
In 2012, Quinn set off to break the female team speed record on El Capitan, and was successful. The record has since been broken, but in spirit of full day or multi-day climbing adventures— fast and clean—she strives to adventure and keep pushing the limits.
When she’s not working with KMAC, you can catch Quinn at one of her Mindful Movement-Yoga and Rock Climbing Retreats through her own company Dovetail Mountain Adventures or enjoying some handstands and a cool Colorado river day. Take a look at the Dovetail Mountain Adventures website.
