Ever since the first day I entered a mogul competition, I knew that this sport was for me. The thrill and adrenaline associated with stepping into the gate before each run, knowing you could have the run of your life, is a feeling that I will cherish years after I stop mogul skiing. I love stepping it up each day during training and competition to face every obstacle that I encounter along my journey; each surpassed challenge leaves me wanting more. Throughout my career, the most important lesson I’ve learned is how consistent hard work and determination pay off in the long run.

After two years representing the United States on the top level of my sport, I’m thankful for all of the experience I’ve gained. This past season brought about several big lessons for me — in being named as the first alternate for the Winter Olympic Games (and consequently being forced to take a hard look at my career and current training/competition practices) I learned quite a bit about myself, in addition to discovering a consistent fire in my skiing that will characterize each of my mogul runs moving forward. From the lessons, though, came my best — and most consistent — results as I finished out the season (including a 4th place singles finish, my best World Cup Singles result ever).

Moving forward into a new Olympic cycle, I am determined to give the next 4 years my everything. I want to push the women’s side of the sport through tricks with higher degrees of difficulty, all while solidifying my place as the best mogul skier in the world. This season (which includes World Championships) is sure to be one of the most exciting yet!!

Beyond the Bumps

Aside from freestyle competitive skiing, I have recently graduated from Stanford Online High School, a highly selective independent school for gifted students and intellectual risk takers. For the next step in my education, I’m beyond excited to be a student at Columbia University in NYC!!!

Giving Back

When I’m at home in Park City, I have been volunteering a few hours per week at the local food bank - The Christian Center of Park City. I also volunteer at Nuzzles and Co. - the animal adoption shelter in Park City. My time volunteering has helped me to realize how important it is to give back, and how even a small bit of effort can make a big difference in one’s community.

  • RMF 2016 "Go For the Gold" Award

    March 5, 2016 - Winter Park, CO

    A positive point of not being able to compete on the NorAm Tour was that I was able to go to Winter Park to cheer on my brother, Frankie, at the Rocky Mountain Freestyle Divisional Championships. He skied the best he had all season and won his age group!

    I also was able to attend the RMF end-of-the-season banquet where I was surprised and humbled to receive the Rocky Mountain Freestyle "Go For the Gold" award. This award is given to the RMF athlete who displays "Outstanding Achievement, Spirit and Promise in the Sport of Freestyle Skiing". Thank you RMF!!

    Unfortunately, two days later I had a bad crash in duals, which sidelined me from competing in the NorAm Tour. For the next four weeks, I worked hard in the gym and was determined to come back this season. Thank you SSWSC & my parents for supporting me and helping me make this happen!
