Mya grew up skiing and adventuring the outdoors of the East Coast. Ten years ago, she skied at Targhee and fell in love, knowing one day she had to return. After graduating college unsure of what she wanted to do, she decided to chase the snow and pursue her love of skiing. The second she saw the Tetons again, she fell in love and knew this is where she was meant to be. Being new to the area she attended a few SheJumps events where she was welcomed and instantly felt right at home. This inspired Mya to want to create more spaces like this in the community and was lucky enough to become an ambassador for SheJumps!

Mya is excited to be able to share her love of the outdoors with other women and girls as it’s provided her with motivation, hope, self-love, and joy. She hopes to help empower them to be their true authentic selves and follow their dreams and their hearts. Mya looks forward to meeting other women in the community to explore new outdoor activities and feel more confident in the mountains.
