Being a professional water skier is the greatest job in the world. The lake is my office, the boat is my business partner, and the industry is in one its most transformative periods in history. Being a member of the elite women’s slalom roster right now is such a privilege. It’s been an incredible adventure so far, and I’m looking forward to standing side-by-side with my female competitors as we fight for what’s ours for years to come.
My time as a third generation pro skier tells a story of wins and losses, highs and lows, and most importantly, lessons learned. Of course I’ve won my share of titles, but sharing my journey has been the most rewarding facet of my career. If I can help someone be smarter, better, and stronger, that’s a win for the entire water ski community in perpetuity.
In the spring of 2022, I sustained a violent crash while training that resulted in torn forearm muscles and a concussion. During my time off the water, I took a deep dive into my overall health. Through functional lab work, I discovered that I have hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's Disease. Both of these conditions impair my body's ability to produce hormones and recover from intense training. Through nutrition and functional medicine, I am working to redefine what it means to have an autoimmune disease as an athlete.
