some background info
I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. I have always been happiest while in the outdoors and exploring new places. Growing up I played soccer, ran track and field and cross country, mountain biked, and ultimately decided to focus on nordic skiing the summer before college. At Middlebury College, I studied Neuroscience and was a three time NCAA participant. I represented the U.S. Ski Team in Under-23 World Championships in 2016 and 2017, and competed in my first World Cup this past season!
New year, new team!
I recently joined the SMST2 team, based in Stratton, Vermont. While racing with the Sun Valley Gold Team for the past two years, I found some International success with top tens at Scandinavian and OPA cups as well as a top 40 in my first World Cup. I am thrilled to now be a part of an amazing team here in Stratton to continue to pursue my goals of skiing competitively in World Cups, and representing my country at future World Championships and Olympics.
OUTSIDE OF SKIING
One of my favorite aspects of training for nordic skiing is that I can do so many other sports. My favorites include running, rock climbing, back country skiing, road biking and mountain biking. I also love to sail and was a sailing instructor throughout high school and early college. If I'm not outside, you'll probably find me drawing, making food with friends, drinking a warm cup of coffee or tea, or napping! I love to explore new places and meet new people - the picture to the left is from a trip to the coast of Spain with my best friend!
