I got my start in aerials when my mom caught me doing back flips on skis and sent me to learn safety at the Lake Placid water ramps. After that the coaches saw potential in me with aerials and once they told me I could do as many inverted back flips on skis as I wanted, I was sold. It was really hard to leave home at 13 years old to ski, but if I hadn’t have done it I wouldn’t be here. The training isn’t easy, but its tends to make it better when your training for a sport that you generally love. I have a really good feeling about the 2014-2015 season.
As I grew up I got egger to try excelled tricks and decided to put my gymnastics training together with skiing and began to throw back flips on snow, the next day my mom was signing me up for summer water ramping camp in Lake Placid, NY to practice back flips safely under the coaching of Wes Preston. In Lake Placid I found aerials skiing, where I could throw as many inverted flips as I wanted. After the Lake Placid, I joined the Waterville Freestyle Team at Waterville Valley for a short period, which then led me to the Elite Aerial Development Program in Lake Placid, NH and to where I am today.
