What was your first job?
Making milkshakes at the Truckee Diner.

Best way to spend your down days?
With friends exploring a new place!

Current favorite piece of gear?
My new BCA Float 17 pack. It is redesigned for better carrying, it is lighter and it is key for safely in the backcountry!

What is your number one goal in skiing/riding right now?
To have fun! I always was to try new things and challenge myself but it always needs to be fun!

Best advice you were ever given?
My dad once told me to be like a duck... sometimes you just need to let the water roll off your back! Basically, don't sweat the small stuff.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
All the amazing, strong women around me.

What is your greatest fear?
Being too afraid.

Best moment filming with WME this year?
McKenna, Lexi and I got to go paragliding the last day of filming in Val d'Isere. We took off from high up on the mountain and floated around the valley, eventually landing down in town. The views were incredible and it was so cool to fly!
