Karly has lived in Oregon since high school, after spending her childhood as a military brat and living in the US and Germany. Her affinity for the outdoors didn’t take off until after college when she sought solitude in the wilderness as a break from corporate life. It started with backpacking, then snowballed from there: rock climbing, mountaineering, backcountry skiing, even cycling and mountain biking! Nothing makes Karly happier than climbing a mountain and skiing back to the car.
She realized that working in marketing and sitting in front of a computer for 40 hours a week was no longer in her wheelhouse, so after a quarter-life sabbatical over the summer of 2020 and time spent peak bagging in Glacier NP, Karly joined the Mountain Shop family! She’s thrilled to have like-minded coworkers who take their free time seriously in search of epic adventures.
