Favia Dubyk

Based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Favia Dubyk is an avid boulderer that loves training, particularly hangboarding. Dubyk became obsessed with training after conquering advanced stage cancer. She had to undergo multiple surgeries and months of chemotherapy that wrecked her body. Focused and intense training helped her regain her confidence and strength. Now she especially enjoys learning new exercises and sharing them with others! Outside of climbing, Dubyk is a physician at the University of New Mexico, where she practices pathology. She also enjoys photography---often capturing images of her rottweiler-doberman dog, five cats, and her mountain-biking husband, Brian, during their many adventures in the Southwest.
