6: Lizzy VanPatten


On this weeks episode, I talk to Lizzy VanPatten. Lizzy is an outdoor guide and one of the creators of She Moves Mountains –a guiding company focused on educating and empowering women about rock climbing and the outdoors.

On this episode, we talk about how Lizzy went from depressed college kid, to hiking the trails of the Pacific Northwest, to climbing in Patagonia and finding happiness and her passion. We talk about the effort it takes to run a business, and how that does and doesn’t get in the way of climbing life. And we look forward to what’s next for She Moves Mountains and female guides.

Find more about She Moves Mountains at shemovesmountains.org or follow them on Instagram. Lizzy is also on Instagram.
