Olympian, Spokesperson & Mom.
At the age of 2 I learned to ski at Squaw Valley, California. I attended Burke Mountain Academy, a high school ski academy in Vermont. I was a 7-year member of the women’s U.S. National Alpine Ski Team earning a spot on the 1992 Winter Olympic team qualifying for the Super Combined and Giant Slalom. On the World Cup circuit I earned points in every discipline.
After leaving the national team in the mid-1990’s, my desire to change my focus in skiing led me on a road trip to different ski towns. One of my stops was Crested Butte, Colorado and the realm of extreme skiing. I entered Crested Butte’s “extreme” skiing contest and it was the most fun I have had in years. I went on to win two World Extreme Skiing Championship; the 1998 Pro Tour Title and competed in the first X-Games Women’s skier-cross.
Filming for Matchstick Productions and Warren Miller, to name a few, is where I had my biggest impact and made a name for myself in the world of big mountain skiing. After many years away from the camera and high-risk endeavors, I was easily convinced to test my skills again to film with Mike Douglas, of Switchback Productions, in 2013. Mike filmed an episode for Salomonfreeskitv.com, called “Super Mom,” which won Best Short at the 2014 Powder awards.
I am the mother of two boys, Devin 8 and Aksel 9. Currently, I am the Crested Butte Mountain Resort's Ambassador. I am still very passionate about skiing for myself and with my kids, as well as sharing my passion to help others. I teach private lessons here, in Crested Butte, and around the world.
