I was raised in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with Yosemite's Badger Pass and Sonora's Dodge Ridge as my home mountains. I ended up at Mammoth for what I thought would be a season, and it turned into 16 years! AASI/PSIA trained thru their awesome Sport School, I really grasped the physics behind snowboarding and enjoy giving tips and advice! I also met my husband in Mammoth, and he is a hardware guru and has taken my knowledge to a whole other level. He is a Master Boot Fitter and i go to him for all my boot comfiness needs to make sure I'm not getting any hot spots or loose areas. We relocated to his hometown of Cincinnati after we started a family and although I'm used to riding bigger mountains; I love the little local family mountain we have nearby, Perfect North, Indiana! I hope to get back and ride Mammoth at least once a season. Luckily, i can go in the summer time certain seasons and still get that opportunity! My goal as your Snowboard Expert is to guide you into the right choice of gear, whether you just had your first lesson and it left you hungry for more, needing an upgrade and want some assistance on narrowing your choices down, or you're just looking to transition to a different part of the mountain and not sure where to start. I can be your personal concierge and help ease the process of shopping for new gear by bringing everything to you, in your size, ready to go! Snowboarding is fun, so shopping for gear should be too! Together, we can determine what your goals and strengths are to make sure you're getting something you truly fall in love with.
