Hi! I have been skiing since before I was able to walk! Skiing was a family affair for us, my Mom was a world cup ski racer and my Dad all 6 foot 6 inches of him was the expert tailgating chef! When I was just over 3 years old he would place me on top of his shoulders and ski down the mountain! Me holding on to the top of his head with delight! The mountains are truly my very happy place! I am a trained professional chef and have had a very successful career in the restaurant industry that often took me away from the slopes. Now that I am I older (and wiser) I have returned to my outdoor passion & ski at least once every month of the year. Winter months I average 4 to 5 days a week on the mountain. I am a certified PSIA ski instructor and a Senior specialist. I love to teach skiing to all ages, I have so much fun helping people learn how to ski or improve upon their current skiing abilities. My passion is to share with others exactly why skiing and being in the mountains is a lifestyle of the purest JOY! Off season you will find me hiking with my skis on my pack to remote patches of snow in the mountains of the PNW and touring whenever I have a chance. I hope that I can create your perfect set up!
I am grateful for the opportunity to share with you the wonder of the world of winter sports!
