A Mainer through and through, Darby is a graduate of Babson College and now resides in Cambridge. She joined Rockwerx after discovering her deep hatred of high-volume tech sales after jumping into a job post-graduation. A former whitewater raft guide, she now prefers to go solo on her bodyboard and is picking up kayaking. She has been an avid climber since 2013 and enjoys trying her hand at anything new in the outdoors. When not adventuring, she loves a Stanley Kubrick movie, diving into a stack of vinyls, or reading a classic modernist work.
