How and when did you start skiing

My Dad tried to get me skiing when I was three years-old. I liked soccer better. It wasn't until college that I reunited with skiing.

Who were you skiing with at first

My Dad and then friends on the UC Berkeley ski team (Alice, Pat, Mike, Zach, Miles!)

What terrain were you riding at first

Any snow/terrain I could spend time on

Who were some early influences on your skiing

Ingrid, Shane, and my dad

Do you enjoy skiing in contests

Yes, if it's a pow day!

How could contests be improved

Scheduling around conditions

What do you think of ski movies

Love them!

Which are your favorites

Do you ski in the rain

Yes! I live in Washington!

What do you like about Atomic

Authentically the best from racing to freeskiing!

How did you get in Atomic

One of my biggest supporters, photographer Re Wikstrom, drove me to an appointment with the team manager at the Atomic U.S. headquarters.

Who do you ski with now

Zack Giffin and Ben Price, my favorite Mt. Baker locals and my go-to backcountry partners

Who are your favorite skiers of all time

Ingrid (because she rips and is so nice) and Lynsey Vonn (because she works really hard)

What have been the highlights of your skiing career

Three first female descents on Mt. Shuksan

Is there anything in skiing you haven't done that you'd like to accomplish

Ski in the Himalayas and film a ski line I am proud of

What do you do besides skiing

Dance, travel, write, Pilates, mountain bike, read, and brainstorm
