Your Location (where do you ride mostly): Eden, Utah: Powder Mountain

 Weapon(s) of choice:  snowboard, wake surf, wake board

 What is the most difficult part of your activity/sports for a beginner? The easiest?

The most difficult part is getting up the first time and getting the feel for things, it all comes naturally the more you practice. 

What is the best and worst thing about being female in your sport? The best thing: cool apparel to wear and look great in while you have fun. The worst thing: being compared and put down because of gender. 

 

 

What would you like to see change in your sport to make it better for you and other female athletes? More girls putting their names, faces and talents out there! 

Besides your ability and style factor as an athlete, how would you describe your personal style? My personal style is comfortable. I stick to darker colors generally, but little pops of color here and there are incorporated. I also like workout clothes. Even if I don’t do any physical activity while wearing them haha. 

Let’s hear your thoughts on how important looking good is to feeling good. “Being” your personal best? When you look good, you feel good and your smile is always your best accessory.

 

How dangerous do u really think it is compared to what people do in their regular activities? I’ve found I am most comfortable wake surfing. There is less of an impact when you fall, and that makes me more willing to try new tricks and things. 

 

What are three things you could not live without? Humor, a hairbrush, and chapstick.

 

What are your expectations for this activity/sport? To continually progress and never get too comfortable.

 

Favorite conditions? Sunny and warm for all seasons.

 

Favorite drink of choice to refresh yourself after a long day of riding/shooting? Ice water or a mango with boba smoothie!

 

What do you want to be when you grow up? A dermatologist.

 

I’m tall and occasionally awkward, similar to a baby deer on it’s legs for the first time.   I’m excited to not just model, but to progress in action sports and look good doing it :)
