Tell us about your 2018-2019 Freeride season.

The IFSA season was really fun and I enjoyed it a lot. I liked the venues and am very happy with my runs.I liked that our regional series TJFS allowed me to compete with the boys. I hope that more girls will start competing, like Kaia, she makes it so much more fun.

How do you prepare for Freeride season in the summer?

For this summer I have plans to go to Spain with my family and see some soccer as well as just having fun. I will continue to practice soccer, wake surfing, and swimming. I look up to Jamie Anderson, even though she does not do big mountain she really inspires me with her style and commitment.

Any shoutouts?

I would like to thank my family, my coach Nicki, my friends and my teammates! Also all of the people who volunteer and work to make these contests happen.
