Gym Lead - Community

Denise first showed up at Bolder in 2020, completely new to climbing, and decided to get a membership within the next two visits. She was immediately impressed by how welcoming and supportive the staff and community was and Bolder soon became her favourite place to hang out at. Her longest record of staying at the gym unprovoked is approximately 8 hours, and now she has the privilege of working here. Her main responsibilities now include front of house management, catering to the desk staff’s every whim, and customer service.

Denise has completed a concurrent Kinesiology and Education degree at the University of Calgary, and has spent the majority of her life as a competitive dancer. Denise’s background is reflected by her passion for promoting physical literacy, helping others find fun and inclusive communities in sport, and trying new activities. Also really loves Spikeball.
