Path to the #AdaptiveNation:

I was born with spina bifida, a spinal birth defect. I skied most of my childhood and when I was about 8-10, I wanted to race. In 2014, I was introduced to the NAC Competition Team. I was four-tracking at the time–rules and regulations changed in the racing circuit. I had to learn how to monoski in order to compete. NAC taught me how to mono-ski for a couple of seasons and then I was back on the competition team! I’ve been on the team for about three years now!


To compete in the 2022 Paralympics in Beijing, China
To live life to its fullest.

Favorite quote/mantra:

“Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise.”
