A Little Bit about Quinn
Quinn Brett is an adventurer and record setting athlete. Tying herself to Estes Park, Colorado for the last fifteen years, she strives to push mind and body to the limits. She holds numerous speed climbing records in Yosemite, Zion and Rocky Mountain National park, is a competitive triathlete, and an eclectic tight wearing handstand master.
Professionally Quinn worked during the summer months as a climbing ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park---essentially medical and technical first responder . She was the only female in this highly coveted position. To compliment the rescue and medical component of this job, Quinn taught Wilderness Medical Courses with Remote Medical International during the winter months.
Last fall, she sustained a spinal cord injury from a fall while climbing on El Capitan in Yosemite. Although her life is undergoing some drastic changes, unable to walk, climb, run and handstand, Quinn is pushing forward with hope. Wilderness experiences, before her accident, provided Quinn with perspective, growth and appreciation of life and others. She hopes to find new ways to enjoy physical endeavors and the therapeutic ways public lands provides.
