I grew up nordic skiing since the moment I could stand, and soon after hiking and trail running followed.

While studying at Franklin University Switzerland, I started climbing and backcountry skiing and became president of my university’s Alpine Club. I loved sharing hikes, climbs and ski days with my peers who may not have previously gone out into the mountains before.

I have continued to develop my passions for playing in the mountains and made that part of my professional life as well. I am the Marketing and Communications coordinator for Skiku, a local non-profit that brings cross-country ski coaches out to rural Alaskan villages, and exposes kids to skiing often for the first time.

I hope to continue to share my love of playing outside through SheJumps and help inspire other women to try something new, and to ‘jump-in’!
