PLACE OF BIRTH Arizona
YEARS WATER SKIING I’ve been a competitive skier since I was five and on the pro ranks for the last six years! And just this year I started competing in the pro ranks as a Wakeboarder as well.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WATER SKIING?
My favorite thing to do when I am not water skiing is to hang out with my friends.
NAME YOUR FAVORITE PLACE WATER SKIING HAS TAKEN YOU?
My favorite place that water skiing has taken me would definitely have to be Australia. If I did not live in the U.S. I would live there. I love competing at Moomba because it is a Nautique sponsored event and the city is so cool and the crowds are amazing.
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU.
I was a level 10 gymnast growing up which has helped me a ton on the water. The air awareness, strength, and determination that gymnastics taught me is the key to my success!
WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE MOST PLAYED SONGS IN YOUR PLAYLIST?
I’m obsessed with country music so pretty much anything within that genre! Haha!
DO YOU HAVE A PRE-RUN ROUTINE YOU DO BEFORE CONTESTS FOR GOOD LUCK?
My pre contest routine/warmup is to do some tumbling/handstands before I hit the water! Since I was a gymnast I feel that it’s the only thing that can get me fully warmed up and in the right mindset!
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF YOUR CAREER?
My biggest accomplishment would definitely be breaking the world record three times! Also winning Masters and Worlds are some of my top as well!
IF YOU COULD GIVE SOMEONE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE; WHAT WOULD IT BE?
The piece of advice that I would give someone would be to believe in yourself and to never give up!
