What’s an average day for you like? Sleep, Eat, Homework, Ride. Repeat.
What is the most difficult part of your activity/sports for a beginner? The easiest? The hardest thing is linking turns, and the easiest is just having a good time!
What is the best and worst thing about being female in your sport? I think the
best thing is the growing female community out here and all the support, the
worst is that most girls aren’t taken seriously.
Besides your ability and style factor as an athlete, how would you describe your personal style? I would describe it as very simplistic, but it also ranges from very girly to grunge to hipster. It all depends on the day!
What are your favorite brands/designers for your sports apparel and for stepping out? I really like Neff, Burton, Saga Outerwear, and SheShreds, of course!
How dangerous do you really think your sport is compared to what people do in their regular activities? Snowboarding is a pretty dangerous sport compared to “regular activities,” if you don’t know what you are doing. But if you stay within your personal boundaries and ride to what you know your ability is, it isn’t much more dangerous compared to peoples’ regular activities.
I bet in your experience you have seen some crazy crashes. Describe one. I was riding in the park, and on my first run (bad idea already!!) I overshot a jump and landed directly on my lower back on some ice and ended up with a fractured vertebrae and compressed spine! Definitely my most crazy crash.
What usually gets people hooked on your activity/sport? The adrenaline rush!
What is your favorite trick?Front Blunt
What are three things you could not live without? My Subaru. Snow. Snowboard.
Who have been your biggest supporters in getting you to where you are now? Definitely my parents and my sister, but some of my close friends and coaches have helped me get so far!
Who’s your favorite rider/shooter (photo/video)? My favorite male rider is Mark McMorris, and my favorite female rider is Jessika Jenson.
What do you do in your spare time when you’re not riding/shooting/competing? I'm usually working, doing homework, or sleeping.
