Roxy Burke

Meet Roxy Burke, a behavioral analyst and rock climber living in Brooklyn, New York.

Hikerkind:

Tell us about yourself.

Roxy Burke:

My name is Roxy, and I'm a behavioral analyst working with children on the autism spectrum. In my free time, I enjoy visiting galleries with friends, taking my cat for walks, having park picnics, and rock climbing.

Hikerkind:

Why do you climb?

Roxy Burke:

I started climbing 8 years ago when a friend introduced me to the sport at a local gym. Climbing captivates me because it presents itself as a puzzle that isn't solely based on physical strength. It constantly challenges me to exercise my problem-solving skills, cultivate resilience, and discover profound moments of joy and accomplishment. 

Hikerkind:

How does it make you feel?

Roxy Burke:

Climbing makes me feel calm and centered. When I find myself on a big wall, it simplifies my thoughts and transforms into a meditative experience. In those moments, there is no space for overanalyzing thoughts; instead, I must remain fully present and concentrate solely on the task at hand.

Hikerkind:

What was your experience with nature like growing up?

Roxy Burke:

Growing up on a farm in California, nature was my playground. Climbing trees, chasing after lizards, and running through our orange orchard were regular adventures that shaped my childhood. These experiences created a deep connection with nature that remains an essential part of who I am, and it continues to be a top priority in my life.

Hikerkind:

How does the outdoors inspire you now?

Roxy Burke:

The outdoors inspires me in countless ways. It never fails to evoke a sense of wonder and appreciation within me. Being surrounded by nature fuels my desire to explore and fully embrace life's experiences. It creates a profound sense of awe that helps me find balance and escape the busyness that often comes with living in New York.

Roxy is wearing Base Bra_01 and Base Shorts_01 in size small.
