BIRTHDAY August 2, 2001
YEARS WATER SKIING I have skied since the age of four years old and I began tricking at the age of eight.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WATER SKIING?
I love to tube, wakesurf, and do yoga. In the winter, my family and I go to Park City, Utah and snow ski.
NAME YOUR FAVORITE PLACE WATER SKIING HAS TAKEN YOU?
Melbourne, Australia at the Nautique Moomba Masters.
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU. I have a webbed toe.
WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE MOST PLAYED SONGS IN YOUR PLAYLIST?
Any song by Coldplay.
DO YOU HAVE A PRE-RUN ROUTINE YOU DO BEFORE CONTESTS FOR GOOD LUCK?
I always have eggs for breakfast but other than that, try to treat it like a normal day of training.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF YOUR CAREER?
The biggest accomplishment in my career has been being the youngest woman (and one of only three others) to trick over 10,000 points. My determination and drive was sparked when I became the youngest person to make finals at a world championships in 2012 in Santiago, Chile, which became the start of my tricking career on a professional level.
IF YOU COULD GIVE SOMEONE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE; WHAT WOULD IT BE?
If I’m ever nervous before a competition, I tell myself that there are going to be hundreds more competitions, so don’t worry and do your best because you have so many more to come.
