What age did you start wakeboarding and who got you involved in the sport?

I started water skiing at age three and a half. The year I turned four my dad got me a wakeboard for Christmas and once I tried it I fell in love.

You travel to amazing places, what is your best trip so far?

My favorite trip was to Australia this past March. I got to go to several different places and experience so many amazing things.

Tell us about Australia and the cool  things you did there.

I got to ride in Yarrawonga on a river surrounded by dead trees. It is probably one of the most amazing places I have ever ridden. I went to Melbourne for the Moomba Masters, and had the chance to explore the city. We then traveled to Sydney and eventually to Penrith where the cable park is located. At the end of the trip Ash Blake and I went to the Wisemans Ferry.

How has SheShreds made an impact in your wakeboarding life? What does being a part of SheShreds mean to you?

SheShreds has helped me go out and make an effort to teach and get other girls involved in the sport. SheShreds is about getting more girls into wakeboarding and enjoying it as well.

We are stoked you are coming to Utah! What is your favorite thing about teaching other girls and women to wakeboard?

I love seeing people get up for the first time or learning a new trick. The look on their face makes me so happy!

What is your favorite meal after a long day on the water?

I love anything from Gnarly Barley.

Pirates or Unicorns?

Unicorns!!

Cute Rainbow Unicorn Posters - Don't stop believin':

What wake set up are your currently riding?

138 Jobe Grace with Liberty Bindings.

 

Any words of encouragement for girls and women just starting to learn the sport of wakeboarding?

Remember it is all about having fun while your out on the water and also enjoying time with your friends.

Craziest thing you have ever done?

When I was in China, we were trying to get to a different airport and none of the taxis would take us. A random guy came by and took me and my two friends and took us to his car. He barely spoke any English, we tried telling him where we needed to go and somehow we ended up at the right airport and not kidnapped!
