What is your biggest sliding achievement so far?
I do not have one particular moment but winning 3rd overall on Euro Cup in the 2016-2017 season was a great moment for me moving forward in my career knowing that I can constantly continue to improve everyday.
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
My strengths would be perseverance and always believing in myself. My weaknesses would be that I am my own worst critic. Sometimes I need to be nicer to myself and realize that I will make mistakes 99% of the time and that is okay.
What’s your next/biggest goal in your sport?
I think everyone's goal is to make the Olympic Games, but more importantly I strive to become a top 10 athlete at the World Cup level and I will achieve this by becoming a great start competitor.
What’s your former sporting career/former sports?
I was a cheerleader and pole vaulter at the University of North Texas.
What was your favourite sliding moment?
Most of my favorite moments are just silly and crazy times with my best friends on tour. I am lucky to be living this lifestyle and make friendships that will last a lifetime.
