So how’s the view from the top? What’s living this life been like?
At first boarding was a fun excuse to play in the mountains every weekend, and then it turned into a journey around the world—a life that would shape and mold me for the rest of my life.

What’s been your favorite part about it all?
Traveling the world, meeting passionate and talented humans and breathing the fresh air in nature.”

You’re a Newport Beach girl in cold weather all the time—how do you cope?
I can’t handle being cold—I was born and raised at the beach. I definitely need my cozy Oakley goggles and outerwear.

Have anything you want to get off your chest about women's snowboarding?
I don’t see the value in being compared to men, as we are clearly very different on many platforms. I would love to see women who snowboard spotlighted for their talents and beauty. We have a lot to be proud of.

Meet all the ladies of the Boarder Patrol!
