How you got into skiing?
I have always skied my entire life. I fell out of cross country skiing when I was really you around fourth to sixth grade. The middle school I went to have a Nordic team and a few of my friends were on it, so in seventh grade I joined the team and fell in love. I have been competing ever since.
 
Your goals for this upcoming summer training?
My goals for summer training are to get a lot of good quality sessions in. I think this is going to be possible because there is going to be a good group of athletes to train with this summer in Sun Valley. The Gold Team is very strong, and there is going to be a very good group of college athletes to train with. Mostly, I’m looking forward to working hard and having a lot of fun.

This season I will mainly be skiing super tour to try to get world cup starts. My goal is to race in Europe in Period 2 or three and then race the World Cups that are coming to the US and Canada. My other goals are to be top 3 in the Skate Birkie and win the Boulder Mountain tour again.
