Every mountain top is within reach as long as you keep on walkin’.

What mountain are you facing right now? And, more importantly, how’s the climb going?

If you’re standing at the base, looking up, and feeling intimidated about what’s ahead, I encourage you to breathe deep and take that first step. The path gets clearer as you begin to walk.

If you’re overwhelmed in the middle, feeling like there’s no end in sight and unsure if you’ve got the strength to continue, take a pause to clear your head and review the route. Find a checkpoint not too far ahead and dig deep until you get there. These little victories are tiny but powerful gifts of momentum.

Whether you believe it or not, you are capable of so much more than you can imagine right now.

It’s as simple – and as hard – as getting started and keeping going.

If you need a partner at some point along the way, keep browsing, because you’re in the right place.

Dream big and climb high! 

Hi, I’m Chelsey!

Purpose-Driven: I’m a coach, certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), that feels compelled to make life meaningful for myself and others.

Outdoor-Inspired: I’m a mountain climber, cyclist, and outdoor educator whose best self, and ideas, come alive when pushing my limits in the open air.

These experiences have made me more self-aware, resilient, and empowered. They have given me the mindset and tools to achieve great things, overcome great obstacles, and, most importantly, have the courage to live life as it makes sense to me.

Through Finding North, I help people climb the literal and figurative mountains in their lives. Sometimes I guide, sometimes I walk along side, but I’m always there, committed to helping them reach the top, build their connection with themselves and the natural world, and live their best lives.

“I followed your advice and woke up to hike and see the sunrise at the base of the Towers in Torres del Paine. Priceless!!! Thank you!!”

“You have inspired me to start hiking!!”

“I’m following your blogs and day by day reports for my Aconcagua climb next year, thank you!!”

“Someday I want to read your book, so I can really feel the things you feel in these moments. Thank you for sharing.”

“I always wanted to try climbing but was scared to do so… but I think I’m gonna go for it!!”


I’m the partner you need when stepping outside the comfort zone.


What do you want life to look like? What are you doing? Who’s in it? It may be overwhelming and scary, but it can be done. Build the courage to make that life you dream about on the inside, a reality of what life looks like on the outside.
