About Lizzy

  • Our Team: Lizzy Scully

    Writer/editor, entrepreneur, rock climber, and owner of MergeThis Media, Lizzy Scully jumped into a print journalism career just out of graduate school. “At age 26 I realized I could travel around the world, rock climb, and also make a living.” she says.

And, along the way she founded and for 3 years published She Sends, the first magazine for women climbers; she started the nonprofit Girls Education International; she has written hundreds of articles for both print and online publications; and she has honed her public relations and social media skills working for dozens of events, businesses, and nonprofits (such as Metropolitan State University, HERA Climb4Life, among others).
