I was born and raised in Colorado, already camping at 2 months old and rafting at age one! My parents taught me skiing at age two. By the time I was six I was backcountry touring with my family. I tried snowboarding at an early age (four years old), but my parents insisted that I learn to ski well first. Finally, when I turned eight, I began snowboarding and never looked back! I joined the Winter Park Snowboard Team in 2011. We boarded all over the mountain having a blast and learning new skills. In 2014,
I tried my first Boardercross (SBX) race and loved it! That season, I was #1 in the Rocky Mountain Series for Breakers (13-14 yrs) winning 5 Golds, 1 Silver, and 1 Bronze. I finished 12th at Nationals. Unfortunately, the following year in January of 2015, I broke my humerus and was out for the season.
Throughout the 2015-16 season I was determined to make up for lost time! I finished 1st in the Rocky Mountain Series in SBX, Slalom, and Giant Slalom. At Nationals, I placed 4th in SBX (Youth:15-16 yrs), and 12th in Slalom. Immediately following the Finals, I flew to Canada to compete in the Freeride North American Championships where I finished 2nd but won the #1 overall North American Title and qualified to compete in the 2017 Freeride Junior Worlds in Andorra.
2016-17, I placed 5th at the Freeride Junior World Championships in Andorra and #1 in Freeride at the North American National Championships (securing the #1 overall title for the 2nd year in a row). Boardercross was equally as exciting: I became the USASA National Champion in Juniors (16-17 yrs) and dabbled in the NorAms at Ski Copper, placing 10th & 6th respectively, and 2nd place at the Revolution Tour. I finished the SBX season #120 in the World and #33 in the US.
The 2017-18 season started off with me hitting the slopes in full stride. I competed in the South American Cup in Parva, Chile and placed 5th against some World Cup riders! I subsequently competed in Corralco, Chile and finished 2nd against the 3 time Chilean Olympian! After graduating early from high school in December, I devoted myself to training full-time in SBX and Freeride. I finished #1 overall on the North American SBX Tour and earned a spot on the SBX World Cup for the 2018-19 season! At the 2018 Freeride Junior World Championships in Austria, I placed 4th. I finished the season #42 in SBX in the World and #6 in the US. In 2018 I was named to the US SBX Team!
In 2018-19, I raced on the SBX World Cup. I started the season ranked 30th. At my 2nd race in Cervenia I finished 12th beating the 2018 Olympic Silver medalist twice! At the 2019 Snowboard World Championships I finished 22nd in the Women's, and 9th in the Mixed event. I flew on to Feldberg, Germany for the next World Cup and finished 20th. Unfortunately, in March on my training run at the World Cup in Spain, I shattered my wrist & was out for the rest of the season. However, through physical therapy & training I was able to regain my strength and range of motion & competed in the U24 Ultimate Frisbee World Championships in July, where we became World Champions!.
In mid-November the rest of my internal hardware was removed from my wrist, and I am cleared to compete in the upcoming December World Cups in Europe. I'm excited to continue on this amazing journey pushing myself closer to my Olympic goals!
