Sunny started leading multi-day backcountry trips in the mid-2000s as a student at Harvard College.  She went on to obtain an MBA from Harvard Business School and pursue a career as a management consultant while simultaneously expanding her climbing and mountaineering skill set.  
 
At the end of 2015, Sunny decided to leave behind the business world in order to focus full-time on climbing and running mountains. 
 
Today, she is a professional mountain athlete with multiple speed records on Aconcagua, the Annapurna Circuit, and in the Colorado Rockies.  
 
Sunny is a Wilderness First Responder and an AIARE Level II avalanche professional.
