Describe a highlight moment from your 2018 IFSA season.

Traveling down to Kirkwood with my Husband and good friends. We enjoyed the journey stopping at a few other resorts and eating fantastic food in Portland and Salt Lake.
Also making new friends at all the events.

Where can you be found when you are not freeriding?

Charging down the mountain on a Down Hill bike and Camping.

What topic makes you fired up?

When people deny the need for change concerning the environment.

What would you like to see change in the world and how can you make it happen?

I would love to see less throwaway and over-consumption. There are a couple of ways I try to help with this issue... My husband and i have chosen to live in our van full time bringing our overall consumption down, we do our best at watching the footprint we leave behind, and we live a plant-based lifestyle. The Best thing that we can all do is not be afraid to talk about these hard topics and VOTE.

Tell us something about yourself that is unusual or little known.

I have worked at the Northern Light Wolf Centre in Golden BC educating people about the plight of wolves in Canada, and I used to be a Zamboni Driver and Landscaper before moving to the mountains.

What is your dream job?

To work for myself.
