We all have mountains to climb.

And there is only one way to the top… put one foot in front of the other, one day at a time. And never stop believing that it’s possible.


Lucy has a passion to do more than climb mountains for herself. She wants to impact the world in a positive way and inspire others to join her in the effort. As an ambassador of WaterStep, Lucy dedicates her climbs to raising money and awareness for our world’s water and sanitation crisis. She is also an up-and-coming motivational speaker that ignites groups into thought, reflection, and action.


Lucy has been a WaterStep ambassador since climbing Kilimanjaro in January 2017. On that trip, she installed a WaterStep system in a rural village in Uganda that now supplies 3000 people a day with safe drinking water.

Lucy is dedicated to impacting our world’s water crisis by helping to bring safe water to the 748 million people living without it.

Public Speaking

To successfully climb the world’s highest mountains, it takes perspective, purpose, a plan, priorities, and then the hardest of all, peak performance. Lucy will take you on an inspiring adventure sharing the lessons she has learned on the mountain and how they apply to everyday life. Her inspiring story will motivate and energize individuals and teams to climb their next mountain and provide the framework for how to get to the top.


“What makes Lucy unique among other mountaineers and public speakers is that she is in the middle of the adventure, not at the end. It is inspiring to hear her stories of where she has been, where she is going, and the lessons learned along the way.”
