What does SheShredsCo mean to you?
It's strengthening girls and women to be more like Wonder Woman. Total badasses
What challenges do you face being a female in the sport?
With snowboarding, Overthinking a set up. I will sit still and be scared of something for way too long sometimes. Some things I end up trying and doing it first try and then it's like why did I second guess myself. Other times I have to try several times. But, the feeling once you get it is all worth it! No matter what gender you are.
Where is the most unusual place you have done your sport?
With climbing, on regular hikes I'm always touching the rocks and thinking.. I could probably climb this. And give a few moves a shot. I guess I could say the same for yoga that always ends up being in some wild areas in the wilderness.
What has been your most memorable moment so far?
Snowboarding, Probably competing the big air at Powder Mountain. They built the jumps way bigger than I expected and the last jump none of the girls would hit. So, I had to. I ate shit and jacked my ankle and face up. But, I faced going bigger than I ever had. Something I can't forget.
Who/what are your inspirations?
My inspirations right now is everyone doing what they love to do. And not being beat down by what the social norms are. There is plenty of time for work and careers and all that. Do what you love first. Try and make money doing that. Life is about experience in seeing through those wild dreams.
Favorite thing about SheShreds products?
They are so soft they use quality fabric that lasts through an active lifestyle.
