Your favorite thing about skiing/ski racing:
Coming down into the lead on second runs. A day of training when something clicks in your skiing.
What has your sport taught you?
Ski racing has taught me to be humble. I have worked a lot throughout my career on being able to admit when I didn't ski well and why, along with recognizing when someone skied better than me and congratulating them. This has allowed me to make some friends!!
What inspires/motivates you?
I am inspired by my family. They are so proud of me and to see all that they have sacrificed for me pay off has been pretty cool. I have always worked as hard as I can at everything that I have done and I see no reason that should ever change.
Power fuel of choice:
I always eat yogurt and granola before I ski and I am constantly eating snacks on the hill. My favorite snack is probably Peanut m&m's
I really enjoy Power Cleaning.
Your most valuable mental skill & why?
I would say my most valuable mental skill is being able to full-on send it on race days no matter what my confidence level is. I used to always struggle with that and now it has become easier and easier. I am still working on it and always will be.

My Advice to Jr Athletes:
Results don't matter. Every day as a young athlete you should be striving to improve your skiing and your mental skills. That is what will get you to the next level.
