My parents put me on skis when I was 2 years old and got me into racing at 5, and I’ve been chasing snow ever since. I moved from Summit County, CO to Vail about 10 years ago to pursue ski racing more seriously. I graduated a year early from high school and went straight to college. I’m a senior on the CU Ski Team, as well as the women’s team captain, and love every second of it! In my free time, I like to hang out with my friends and 1.5 year old cat named Bentley, play guitar, and paint.
