Esther Colwill
Esther is joining the Everest team to achieve her goal to climb the Seven Summits, an aspiration that began when she grew up in eastern Africa and traveled to Kilimanjaro at the age of 13. British by nationality, Esther moved to Calgary four years ago to combine the opportunity of pursuing a business career with Deloitte & Touche with the accessibility of the Canadian Rockies. As part of her Seven Summits goal, Esther supports New Beginnings, an organization committed to ending domestic violence and providing shelter and support to those affected by it. Information about the organization and donations can be found at

Estherís previous climbs include: Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, Denali, Elbrus, Shuksan and Rainier.
