How We Do What We Do
Everything we do is mission-based and is designed to create opportunities to Jump In, Jump Up, and Jump Out. This is your chance to get involved with the life you’ve always dreamed of – and share the one you’re living – with women and girls in your local community and all over the world! We are here to create and share the new ‘cover girls’; the new inspiration of what it means to ‘jump’ to reach your highest potential.

Half giraffe, half unicorn - all magic.
Designed by co-founder Lynsey Dyer, the Girafficorn exists to remind the child in all of us to play; outside. With feet on the ground and eyes focused where she wants to go, the Giraffcorn stands as a reminder to keep the spirit of play and possibility alive when taking the jump toward our greatest potential.
SheJumps is committed to establishing specific goals and objectives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion and expressing that commitment in all interactions across the organization.
All SheJumps’ board and staff members provide a signed, personal DEI commitment in addition to our organizational DEI commitment. All SheJumps programs will be evaluated based on the organizational DEI policies and stated objectives as provided by the SheJumps Strategic Plan.
As an organization, we also provide ongoing diversity training and educational resources to all members of the organization, including an annual in-person team summit where DEI is a core focus.
Where It Started
SheJumps was founded by Lynsey Dyer, Vanessa Pierce, and Claire Smallwood.
Three friends who rallied around the idea of,
“If she can do it, so can I.”
Whether skiing or climbing, SheJumps wanted to celebrate the accomplishments of women from beginners to pro athletes and provide them with a support system where they would feel confident taking jumps (risks) and try something new.
In July 2007, Co-Founder Vannessa Pierce, organized SheJumps’ first event: 14 women climbing the Grand Teton, the largest group of women to that date. From that point it has become a community for women in all walks of life with programming across the nation.
