Ski History:

I grew up skiing in Stowe, Vermont where I raced for the Mountain Mansfield Ski School and then the Mount Mansfield Winter Academy. In high school it came to me that stick chasing was not for me and after College, I spent a season skiing in Italy and France on the Mont Blanc Massif where I developed a love of Big Mountain skiing and various cured meats. I moved to Crested Butte, CO for the 07-08 (O-heaven O-great) ski season and decided to hang around and see what the west had to offer. Trying my hand at the Freeskiing World Tour in 2010 was one of the best decisions I have ever made as I ended up placing second at the Telluride Freeskiing World Tour Qualifier where I was presented with a very shiny plate and enough money to cover the cost of food and lodging for the event. In the winter of 2011 I decided to compete in five of the seven stops on the FWT and was happy with the results, placing 5th in Revelstoke, 4th at Jackson Hole, and 5th again at Kirkwood. I finished the 2012 season in 5th pace overall which was incredibly exciting. For part of the 2012/ and the 2013 season, I filmed with Meathead Films out of the east coast and was thrilled to have my first movie appearance in "No Matter What" released in the fall of 2012. I continue to work on film and photo projects on the East Coast where I now happily reside with my husband. My most recent film endeavor has been with Unicorn Picnic Productions. In their 2014 film Pretty Faces I skied for the East Coast segment with my good friend Paige Fitzgerald. This has been a highlight of my ski career.  

 Life History:

As you now know, I grew up in Vermont...Hippie central. My parents are not "back to the landers," but they do care deeply about my family's health and about the health of the environment that we live in. Living in such a beautiful place fostered a deep connection to place in me. Where we live makes us who we are, and I believe that because of this we need to work hard to make all our habitats beautiful and nurturing. To learn more about how to communicate with people about their natural surroundings, I spent the last few years in Graduate School at the University of Vermont studying at the Rubenstein School of Natural Resources. I have a Masters of Science in Environmental Thought and Culture and now plan to apply what I have learned in my future endeavors.
