I was born and raised in Jackson where I started my athletic career as a competitive figure skater. After skating for eleven years I decided to pursue my true passion, skiing. I began as a U16 at the ski club in 2012. Over the next four years my skills and understanding of ski racing quickly improved despite three season ending knee injuries. I raced FIS for six years, three years in Jackson and three years racing independently in New York.
Sport Specific Background, Experience, and Roles:
- Competed at USSA and FIS levels for seven years
Education, Professional Degrees, and Certifications:
- BA in History - Asian Studies (St. Lawrence University)
Personal Philosophy or Statement:
- My goal as a coach is to encourage increased awareness of mental health within youth athletics and to ensure my athletes have the skills to safely achieve their goals. I would also like to foster an enduring sense of love and enjoyment for the sport of ski racing and skiing in general.
