My Story

I grew up skiing in the Midwest in Cincinnati, OH. I have been skiing in since the age of 5 and competing since 7. Not being from the South, I had to take advantage of every opportunity presented to me to extend my season. After skiing in dry-suits and breaking the ice during my high school years in the winter months, I was very lucky to be able to attend the University of Louisiana-Lafayette to be able to ski comfortably year-round. Since then, I have become a 2-time world slalom champion, winning both the U21 title in Madrid, Spain and also the University title in Akita, Japan. This sport has brought me great experiences and I have met so many great people. Now residing in Charlotte, NC and working a full-time job for Grant Thornton, I am still working hard to be the best skier that I can be and compete on the pro level.
