My Story:
Coming from a running background I thought snowshoeing would be a great way to stay fit during the winter. Little did I realize that running on the snow at altitude is much more painful than racing on pavement or around in circles. After my first race at Beaver Creek I swore to never snowshoe again. However, I've come to love the challenge of snowshoeing, because here I am, four years later, still at it. Working in child welfare can at times be a draining job, and I use snowshoeing and training for Xterra triathlons as a way to keep myself balanced and healthy - and as an outlet for my somewhat competitive side. Outside of sports I love to travel and have recently gotten in touch with my "girly" side and begun knitting and sewing


Season Goals:
Have fun, compete in local races including the Beaver Creek Snowshoe Series, and compete at the National Championships.
