I was put on skis at the age of 2 at Saddleback Mountain in Maine and the rest is history. I skied nearly every winter weekend as a kid and, as soon as I was able, took Outdoor Emergency Care and became a volunteer ski patroller. Now in my 15th year as a patroller I live in Colorado and am the Patrol Director for Bryan Mountain Ski Patrol - a Backcountry and Nordic patrol on the front range in Colorado. We work closely with the Forest Service to keep backcountry trailheads safe. In addition, I am an Outdoor Emergency Care instructor, help teach our yearly Avalanche Level 1 classes, and am trained in Mountain Travel and Rescue.
In the winter, you can find me chasing powder each weekend in my truck camper - both in resort or touring to backcountry huts. I LOVE talking gear and am excited to help you find the options for your favorite terrain and abilities from tearing up groomers to hoping off boulders.
When I'm not on the slopes I'm probably at my full-time job in corporate wellness where I'm an exercise physiologist and ergonomics specialist. In the warmer months you can find me mountain biking, rafting, or still on my skis or snow blades doing some summer turns up high.
