Lanie started volunteering for the Outdoor Program in 2010 and has since worked her way toward her position of Climbing Center Student Coordinator. She was first introduced to climbing at the crags around her hometown of Helena, Montana, and has since fallen in love with the sport and the community. After moving to Portland in 2008 and realizing that mass amounts of rain are not always conducive to outdoor climbing, she began exploring the realm of climbing gyms. Although not the same as real rock, Lanie still loves spending rainy days in the climbing gym and is extremely excited about the opportunity to help manage one. She is currently pursuing a degree in Spanish and hopes to one day find a career that combines Spanish and Experiential/Outdoor Education. When not working at the ODP or attending classes, Lanie can be found seeking the next outdoor adventure, wandering around the wonderful city of Portland or playing music with her local band.
