What does SheShredsCo mean to you?
It means friends, family and progression. There are so many awesome girls within SheShreds that continue to push themselves and the limits within their sport. Its pretty awesome to be able to connect with these girls, share tips, successes failures, injuries, life struggles, etc. I am so beyond fortunate to be involved. It’s really just a wonderful thing!!
How did you get hooked on your favorite action sport(s)?
I have always had an “adrenaline issue.” I love sports that challenge me and encourage progression and to push limits of what you think is possible. I’m always trying to progress and push myself, but I like to have a lot of fun as well!! Snowboarding and skating do that for me, and its also something I share with my husband.
What challenges do you face being a female in the sport?
Being from the midwest I end up riding a lot of tow ropes, as I get bored just cruising groomers all the time. I am typically the only female in the tow park and it was very intimidating for me starting out. I recently learned how to skateboard and I again, am the only female in the skatepark. I used to be so worried about what “everyone would think” and be “so worried everyone is going to laugh.” I learned how to push past that point and really just don’t care anymore, because I became more focused on what I was trying to do. If you're not falling, you're not trying hard enough!
Where is the most unusual or exciting place you have done your sport?
I started to explore street/urban riding last year. It made me a bit nervous at first but it was super fun. I have some more spots picked I would like to try. :)
What has been your most memorable moment so far?
My husband and I love to take trips and explore places for snowboarding. My all time favorite is Jackson Hole. Jackson was my very first trip and time riding in the mountains and backcountry. I got married at the top of Corbit’s Cabin last January and it was pretty epic. We also went out the Lower Rock Springs gate at Jackson into the backcountry. It was amazing. Words cannot describe the times I have spent in Jackson.
Who/what are your inspirations
Jess Kimura, Elena Height, Anna Gasser, Kimmi Fasani, Madison Blackley are at the top of my list, but there are so many talented women out there, they all inspire me, really.
