What does SheShreds mean to you?

She Shreds Co is an awesome community of amazing ladies! The ambitions, the talent and stoke level is very empowering! There are so many rad girls that do a variety of hardcore sports. The encouragement and support in the group is amazing!


How did you get hooked on your favorite action sport(s)?
My Husband got me into Backcountry Snowmobiling about 7 years ago. It turned into my passion. I enjoy hosting snowmobile events and riding with new people. I love being able to climb mountains and seeing views that most people don't get to see. I love the quietness of the mountain. I love how there is always something new to learn or improve on. Every ride is always a new adventure.


What challenges do you face being a female in the sport?
Backcountry Snowmobiling is a male dominated sport. I have been very blessed with an amazing riding group of guys that have always supported and encouraged me to go and try new things.


Where is the most unusual or exciting place you have done your sport?
My favorite place to ride is at Hells Canyon in the state of Oregon. The views are amazing, there is a variety of riding for all skill levels and my favorite thing about the area is all the untouched Pow out there!

What has been your most memorable moment so far?
My most memorable moment was at a Youth Event I hosted this winter. My daughter McKayla was on the starting line of her very first race, with a nervous but very excited smile on her face. Her Dad was on one side of her sled and her Grandpa was on the other side, both cheering her on with big smiles. Being
able to pass on our passion for snowmobiling to our kids is priceless.

Who/what are your inspirations
My husband is my biggest inspiration! He's taught me everything I know. He has always encouraged me and supported me to try new things!


Favorite thing about SheShreds products?
My favorite thing about She Shreds products is the quality and style of them! The Flannels and Hats are my favorites! I wear them everywhere! I really like how She Shreds carries a variety of products. There is really something for everyone.
