During her semester abroad in Chile, Pia first learned about industrial climbing during a climbing trip. Back in Germany, one of the SEILWORX company buses caught her eye, whereupon she got in touch with the company. A short time later, she began her training as an industrial climber and has been part of the SEILWORX team since 2020. She particularly likes the fact that she is almost always outside at work and can also pursue her hobby at work.
