I learned how to ski when I was 2, and I got into ski racing at the age of 5 by hopping into the Buck Hill Beer League Races with my dad. I raced competitively for Buck Hill in Minnesota under Coach Erich Sailer through high school. Coming from Minnesota, I am a slalom specialist. I recently graduated magna cum laude from Williams College, double majoring in Math and Political Science. I spent my college senior season racing in the FIS U West Division (due to Covid) and podiumed in 4 of the 5 slalom races. For the 2021-2022 ski season, I am skiing as a post-graduate racer with Ski Club Vail.
