I started climbing at the age of 12 and after only one year of climbing I was rewarded as the best youth climber of Norway with the title national champion. Shortly after I started competing internationally against youth climbers from all over the world. After two seasons I climbed the final step and fought against the best in the world ending my youth career with a podium at both the world and the european championship, gold medals from individual european youth cup events and ranked as number one junior in the world in 2012. The year of 2013 was the year I switched my focus from youth to senior and I ended my last year as a junior being among the best and a 14th place in the world cupl. I was ready to start off my senior career.

Three years of sickness and rehab followed and today I am living the life I have always wanted – as a full time climber. In 2017 I made my first and second world cup final, finished 4th in my favorite event and every day I do my very best to reach my goals and improve both as a climber and a person.

Next to my training and competing I love testing my limits on rock, spend time outdoors and coach the younger generation of my local team Kolsås.
