If we were super human, my super power would be…growing muscles. Just kidding, probably flying or being able to control the weather.

FAVORITE RACE VENUE: Bohart Ranch, Bozeman, MT; Soldier Hollow, Midway, UT

ON MY DAYS OFF I… love to adventure, surf, fish, eat donuts, drink copious amounts of coffee, brainstorm ideas for a women’s version of Outdoor Magazine, catch up with friends, do yoga, make lists, soak up the sunshine, swim.


My favorite ski memory is…racing at NCAAs my senior year in my hometown of Bozeman, MT with three of my best friends and current teammates on SMS T2. That day, Dartmouth placed all three girls in the top 6, helping the East sweep the podium under the heat of a blazing western sun. One of the hardest and most amazing races I have ever experienced.
