Athlete and storyteller Dani Reyes-Acosta aims to inspire individual action and collective communion through self-care and self-determination found in the outdoors. After leaving cushy corporate life to find her way back to her roots, she ticked rock climbs and ski lines across Argentina, Chile, Canada, and the USA on a circuitous path to self-actualization.
Based in SW Colorado, Dani is Mexican, Filipina, and Mestiza—and proudly reclaiming the complexities of her heritage as a food producer, cultivator, and legacy Coloradan. Her goal as a mountain athlete is to find the limits of her possible, searching for peaks and valleys that tell the story of Mother Earth's most impacted places.

I want to find the limits of my possible—in the mountains and my creative work—and travel into the higher reaches of the world that vests me with this power. 
To grow as individuals and communities, we must embrace discomfort. This is how we survive as a species.
