Meet SheJumps Board Members: Q&A with Andria Huskinson

Welcome to the Board of Directors: Andria Huskinson. We’re excited to have you and learn more about you.



Q: Tell us a little about yourself.


A: I'm the PR Manager at Alta Ski Resort and a former competitive skier. After meeting fellow board member Connie Marshall while still in university, I decided to embark on a career in Public Relations in the ski industry. I have experience being an event director and have put on several events, including a 200-mile relay race event. I'm grateful to continue Connie's legacy at Alta and in the ski industry.


I grew up in Idaho on a potato farm and learned to ski at Grand Targhee with my parents, who both taught ski school at Targhee. I fell in love with steeper terrain, the powder skiing in trees, and the community at Alta, which I never left. I met the three founders of SheJumps in my early days competing on the big mountain circuit in America and the World Tour. I was one of the women who climbed the Grand Teton as the inaugural SheJumps event.


Q: Place of work, title, location. 


A:  Alta Ski Area, Communication Manager.


Q: Why did you join SheJumps as a board member? 


A:  To become more involved with SheJumps and contribute to the programs.


Q: What goal of the SheJumps 5 year Strategic Plan is the most important to you?


A: Goal 3: SheJumps introductory programs lead to further participation in the outdoors. & Goal 4: Environmental stewardship and sustainability play a central role in SheJumps’ core values.


I think it’s important to get people outdoors participating in an activity that may not have done on their own. I also think it’s important to be good stewards of the environment that we like to play in.



Q: What do you hope to contribute to the SheJumps Board of Directors?


A:  Assist with the Utah programs in any way possible. And to learn from others.


Q: What is your vision for SheJumps?


A:  To keep growing.



Now, it’s time for the lightning round:


Q: Outdoor activity of choice (pick one, two if you must)?


A: Skiing.


Q: Who inspires you to go outside and why?


A: Me, I try not to take for granted that I don’t have any physical limitations and can adventure through self power.


Q: Where is your favorite place to go outside or on an adventure? 


A:  I love the Tetons.


Q: How has the outdoors benefited your health and overall physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing? 


A: All the above. It’s what keeps me sane and grounded.
