Lucy has been climbing mountains since she could walk. She has a deep love for the outdoors and pushing her physical and mental limits to new heights.

Lucy began her highpointing adventure — climbing to the top of every state’s highest mountain — at the age of seven when she and her family visited Black Mountain in Kentucky.

Looking at the US geological survey marker on top of the mountain, Lucy and her family began to wonder where other state highpoints were located. They spent the next four hours while driving home looking up and reading about state highpoints.

For the next five years, Lucy and her family traveled throughout the United States climbing each state’s highest mountain.

To complete the Explorers Grand Slam I will need to summit the 7 highest mountains of every continent and ski to the North and South poles.

Lucy’s made her mark on Mt. Kilimanjaro. She’s set her comfort level to the max on Mt. Elbrus, and she’s faced extreme weather on Mt. Denali. Most recently, Lucy conquered Mt. Aconcagua, also known as the “Mountain of Death”.

Next is Carstensz Pyramid, the tallest island peak on the planet. After her descent, Lucy will travel to Norway and ski to the North Pole. Then she will prepare for a 10-week expedition to the top of Mt. Everest.

Lucy’s final climb will be on Mt. Vinson. With temperatures averaging -20°F, she will ski all 60-miles of the “Last Degree”. When she reaches the South Pole, she will become the youngest woman in the world to complete the Explorers Grand Slam.

My goal is to become the youngest female to complete the Explorers Grand Slam. And with that I hope to gather the support needed to make safe water more accessible to those who need it. Raising awareness is key.

To complete the Explorers Grand Slam I will need to summit the 7 highest mountains of every continent and ski to the North and South poles. The total elevation of the 7 peaks I will climb is 200,306ft. I am hoping to raise $1 for every foot that I climb.

Before March 7, 2022, I must raise $200,306 to fund all of my climbs. My hope is that by breaking the world record for the Explorers Grand Slam, I can raise awareness to my audience about the initiative that matters most to me: the clean water crisis.

Safe water for All

During my travels, I’ve seen first-hand how many people don’t have access to safe drinking water. My goal is to become the youngest female to complete the Explorers Grand Slam. And with that I hope to gather the support needed to make safe water more accessible to those who need it. Raising awareness is key.
