I turned into an avid skier my senior year of High School. Once I became accustomed to Alpine skiing, I decided to pursue the sport of telemarking. From that point forward telemark became my style of choice. After a year in the sport, I began competing, and have never looked back. I started coaching six years ago, when I saw the opportunity to bring more individuals into this great sport.
My Goals and Motivation:
My goal is to always have fun and move myself forward as an athlete and as a coach.I have always naturally challenged myself, and I feel more fulfilled when I give that same will to others.My drive for coaching comes from the spirit I see in the kids I work with.When I see that same spark that I have, in their eyes right before they race, I am rewarded.
Why do you Telemark Race?
I telemark race because I love competition and I love the sport.
