I grew up in Tahoe City, California, where I starting alpine skiing shortly after I learned to walk. As a child, I participated in every sport possible, from track and soccer, to skiing and biking, and everything in between. I started cross country ski racing in middle school and haven't stopped since.
In high school, I started training full-time with Team Unleashed, coached by August Teague. I also continued to run cross country and track at North Tahoe High School. My cross country running coach, Warren Mills, taught me how to fight and take pride in my athletic endeavors. After graduation, I moved out east to ski for the University of New Hampshire.
At UNH, I majored in sport studies, and minored in business administration. I also took classes that I thought would better my athletic career such as, sports nutrition, sports psychology, and coaching. I found success and friendship in academics and athletics throughout my fours years at UNH.
I am now skiing for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Gold Team. SVSEF has been integral in my skiing career so far. They have provided incredible support through coaching, waxing, and traveling. I now spend my summer and fall training full-time and working side jobs In Sun Valley, Idaho. During the winter I travel to different race venues search for national and international success.
