How are you staying busy?

I’m spending a lot of time running online educational activities and developing curriculum for PSIA-AASI NW. With uphill travel and bike trails closed in my area, most of my weekends are spent doing yard work.  My gardens have never look this good.

What is your go-to offseason workout?

I usually ski through July at Timberline so the offseason is short. Around May, I startedd mountain biking, running more, and conditioning with my buddy Jenn Lockwood.

Big goals for next season?

At this point I just want a “normal” season with National Team Selection to cap it all off.  Otherwise, consistently hitting a nose butter 360, building out the next wave of remote e-learning curriculum, working on my visualization and meditation to increase my discipline.

Which digital resource would you recommend for other members?

Follow all the divisions on Facebook and Instagram. There is a lot of great stuff being developed and shared right now. It is fun to see who is doing what and take advantage of the opportunity to get to know people across the country.

What’s your favorite ski movie?

Pretty Faces. It introduced me to She Jumps.

What educational initiative or taskforce project are you working on right now?

In addition to the Remote MA offerings and curriculum development for PSIA-AASI NW, I’m on the National People Skills Taskforce and focused on performance guide drafts at the moment.

Any shout out you would like to share?

All those who have encouraged me to tryout, given support, our reached out. It takes a village. Special kudos to Sean Vetter and Marc Scheanfarber for being my fellow clinicians for PSIA-AASI NW Remote MA and pulling together the snowboard and telemark materials!
