STORY

Born and raised in St. Paul, I now live in Minneapolis. I grew up alpine skiing, and am currently teaching for 2 ski schools. I'm also a PSIA national examiner and proud K2 Women's Ski Alliance member.

I also play ice hockey on 2 teams in the Women's Hockey Association of MN, the largest women's hockey association in the country. Inline skating is the basis for my training, enjoyment, and camaraderie during the "warmer" Minnesota months.

SEASON GOALS

Map out and inline skate every paved trail in Minneapolis.

Spend as much quality time with my 9 year old son as possible. His passions also include inline skating, ice skating and skiing - so that should be easy.

Enlighten other women to the fun, friendship and fantastic feelings around exercise on inline skates.
