I grew up like many of us skiing at the age of 2 and racing at 5. Ski racing has by far been the most exciting and challenging sport that I have had the opportunity to compete in. The community that upholds and arises from this sport is unlike any other I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of. These are the reasons that I love coaching and teaching athletes of all ages what this winter sport has to offer. I am currently the head USSA coach at Brighton Resort for the competition team and love working in the Wasatch.
Originally from Massachusetts, learning to ski a Mt. Wachusett, I now reside in Salt Lake City, Utah. Before moving west I raced for Bates College in Lewiston, Maine and Proctor Academy, New Hampshire. My family frequents Sugarbush in Waitsfield, VT. I love skiing both out East and in the West, but deep snow seems to have captured my attention for now.
The rush of speed in your face, and the feeling of a perfect turn slicing through snow. I am driven by the camaraderie and compassion that ski racing provides and illustrating these aspects of the sport and lifestyle to younger generations. I am driven by the feeling of deep snow and freedom that the Wasatch mountains provide and the memories I am able to share with friends from these moments.
My skiing goals are to instill an excitable passion for this lifelong sport with all of my athletes while providing them a support structure and skills that will help them elevate their experiences on other playing fields. As an athlete I hope to heal from prior injuries and get back to pushing myself on the mountain. For now the community and my athletes keep me connected to the snow and pushing to see what else is out there.
Outside of skiing I am an avid cyclist, looking to get more into gravel and bike packing adventures. I enjoy hiking, trail running, backpacking and camping with friends. I am also a lover of photography/videography, writing and spending time with my Belgian Malinois puppy, Nyx.
