Born and raised among the very climbable rocks of Colorado, Olivia moved to Tucson for school and fell in love with the mountains and the cacti and the climbing community.
As a member of the CASA Executive Team, Olivia hopes to support and celebrate all facets of what makes Southern Arizona’s climbing community so special.
CASA Vice President
Nicki hails from Colorado, a veritable outdoor playground, where she grew up downhill skiing, figure skating, backpacking, hiking, fishing. After retiring in 2016 , Nicki and her husband moved to Tucson for the winter months where she started climbing in 2017, caught the climbing bug by 2018, and now calls that her primary sport.
She joined CASA in 2017 as a member and volunteered as Webmaster in 2019, then as one of the Directors in Fall 2021. In May 2022, she agreed to step into the Vice President role and continue as Webmaster. She looks forward to growing the presence of CASA and climbing in the Tucson community.
Ann grew up hiking, exploring and backpacking and finds balance in the outdoors. She has been involved in adventure programming for kids most of her life and saw firsthand the difference it could make in their lives and in her own children.
After moving back to Tucson with her husband, she decided at age 60 that climbing was a great way to challenge herself both physically and mentally. Ann loves all aspects of climbing and especially the camaraderie and friendships of her climbing partners and the climbing community.
Ann joined CASA as board member in 2020 to support the mission of stewardship and giving back to the community.
Originally from Southern Ontario, Canada, Maggi moved to Arizona in the 90's. After many years of lamenting the lack of trees to climb she embraced the desert, and learned to climb rocks.
She began volunteering at Adopt a Crags in 2016, joined CASA Board of Directors in 2018, and then became CASA President in 2020. In 2022, Maggi switched roles to become the treasurer of CASA.
