Connecting the Climbing Community

When we connect with another climber, it is much more than having someone spot you on your latest project or the chants of encouragement from your belayer as you’re 15 feet above your last piece of gear. Connecting is also about the areas where we climb, and those organizations we partner with to help improve those areas.

Moving Mindful LLC

I have been a massage therapist since 2012 after graduating from the 1000-hour massage therapy program of Academy of Natural Therapy in Greeley, CO. My journey began as a microbiologist when I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Microbiology from Colorado State University in 2011. After my undergraduate years as a premedical student, I began to reconsider my pathway to medical school & decided to pursue my passion for holistic wellness instead. I discovered the benefits of massage through my own experience of using massage therapy for athletic injuries, physical maintenance, & stress/anxiety management. I believe it is important to treat each client as a whole--both mind & body--thus my mission is to facilitate healthy movement & provide a means to mindfulness for each individual in order to guide them into a more healthy lifestyle overall.

I currently reside in Fort Collins where I practice massage in my own home studio. I am an ultrarunner who loves being outdoors, climbing, mountain biking, backpacking, yoga, & more. Massage therapy has helped me maintain my very active lifestyle both in movement & mindfulness. I look forward to sharing the benefits of massage with you!

New Belgium Brewery

We do one thing – make great beer – and we do it with pride. We believe in the true idea of craft, a set of skills honed over time. Quality and craftsmanship demand expert workers who feel passionate about what they make. That’s who we are and what we always aim to be.

Our co-founders built New Belgium Brewing Company on core values and beliefs that continue today. Before Kim Jordan and Jeff Lebesch ever sold a bottle of beer, they hiked into Rocky Mountain National Park with a jug of home brew in one hand and a pen and pad in the other. Together, they wrote down what they wanted to instill into this business dream of theirs.

New Belgium Brewing Purpose Statement

To manifest our love and talent by crafting our customers' favorite brands and proving business can be a force for good.
