FAVORITE GU PRODUCT: Tri-berry hydration drink tabs
FAVORITE ENERGY GEL FLAVOR: Vanilla bean (unless I can get my hands on some Coconut… It is not retailed in the US, but it is the BEST!)

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
Mountain meditation. I simultaneously experience ultimate freedom and a oneness with the natural world when moving through the mountains—whether on foot, on skis, or on wheels. I crave that feeling. And I crave sharing it with others.
HOW ARE YOU DOING GOOD IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
With a Master’s in Environmental Law, I spend a lot of my time outside of training doing environmental work. I am the Director of Grassroots Advocacy for the Teton Backcountry Alliance, a non-profit organization in Wyoming. We work to protect recreation access and natural resources cherished by my hometown outdoor community. I am also a member of the POW Athlete Alliance, and I look forward to broadening my involvement from the local level to the national and international level.
