STORY

My passion for ski racing took root when I was six years old. My family moved to Lyme, New Hampshire, where I grew up skiing for the Ford Sayre Ski Club at the Dartmouth Skiway. After some early regional success, I decided to attend Stratton Mountain School to give myself the best opportunity possible in the sport. I graduated in 2015 and made the US Ski Team the following year. For the past five years, I have worked my way up the ranks of the U.S. Ski Team, making it to the B Team for the 2020/21 season. I have attended Dartmouth College along the way, and I am nearly halfway done with my degree. 

 

Last season I landed my first European Cup top ten finish in SL, but unfortunately, my season was cut short due to a back injury in February. This year, despite having a World Cup GS start spot for the 2021-22 season, the US Ski Team has decided not to support me so I will race for a private international team called Global Racing. I am on a mission to break through on the World Cup circuit and I believe that now I have the tools to do so. My goals for next season are to finish the year in the top 30 in the World Cup GS standings and to make the GS Olympic Team. I believe I am very capable of achieving these goals, however, one of the most difficult parts will be raising the money necessary to fund a high level program without the US Ski Team's resources. I will be relying on grants, sponsorships, and the generosity of my supporters to help me achieve my dreams. I urge you to see every donation to me as an investment to the ski racing community, not simply a gift. My aim is not only to be the best ski racer I can be but also to inspire the next generation of athletes to wholeheartedly pursue their passions. Thus, every donation will take me closer to my goals and give me an opportunity to inspire others.

 

Thank you for your support!
