Rees is originally from Birmingham, Alabama and has since moved out to Colorado and is attending CU Boulder, majoring in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. She is a member of the CU Climbing Team and has loved getting to live in a state where climbing is so popular. Having a mom who rock climbs, she was introduced to the sport at an early age and absolutely fell in love it. She has enjoyed living a lifestyle that allows for time spent outdoors whether that be climbing, hiking or camping. Rees loves sharing her passion with the kids of this next generation and hopes to encourage and motivate them to keep crushing and seek joy and experience through rock climbing.
