My whole life I wanted to pursue a career in snowboarding. With the induction of slopestyle to the 2014 Winter Olympics my dream is quickly turning into a reality. Through hard work, dedication, training, time management, and people like you helping me along the way, I can achieve this goal of becoming the woman in the snowboard industry that I have always dreamed of being.
Growing up in Montana, I had time to focus on the simpler things in life. Taking ballet and playing soccer through my youth taught me dedication, which gave me the tools to pursue a career in snowboarding. I am now in a position in my life where it is so close that I can literally taste it, every little bit helps, and with financial support from my peers, friends, sponsors and family members I can achieve success.
With the new addition of Slopestyle to the 2014 Sochi Olympics I have found new focus in my snowboarding. I now have a clear goal to work towards. This past season I took the initiative to start the qualification process FOR THE OLYMPICS through participating in contests like the Revolution Tour, as well as the Grand Prix and other FIS sanctioned events to acquire the proper points to be considered for the team. Through hard work, dedication, and help from everyone in my life, I was able to position myself properly to be in the running for the US SLOPESTYLE team! Upon receiving an invitation to train with the US Team in Mammoth, May 14-21st of 2012, I realize I am on the right path. I have taken the right steps and will continue to do so to obtain my goal.
