Above is a quick step by step on the exact adjustments made using lightroom. Please note that in the first step I did clone out the rock in the background before continuing making the adjustments. Remember that creating clean edits doesn't have to be a long process. Start with adjusting your white balance, then move on to lighting the portrait.
If you have a hard time seeing the actual adjustments here is the list of adjustments I made:
Step 1: Remove distraction in background
Step 2: Start with color balance
Step 3: Adjust your exposure and contrast
Step 4: Adjust your highlights, shadows, whites and blacks
Step 5: Curve Adjustment
Step 6: Make it sharper and reduce noise
