Born and raised in Cincinnati, OH, I have been skiing since I was five years old. After skiing in dry-suits during my high school years in the winter months, I moved to Louisiana to attend the University of Louisiana-Lafayette to be able to ski year-round. After graduating from UL, I attended Florida State University and obtained a Masters degree in Finance while training with Keith Albritton at Lake 38. Post grad I moved to Charlotte, NC and have been living, working, & training here for about 4 years.

Whats your biggest passion besides water skiing?
Traveling & cooking. I love to see new places, eat good food, and meet new people!
How did you get into water skiing?
I was born into it and am so thankful to my family for making so many sacrifices to give my brother and I the opportunity to be involved in competitive waterskiing.
Why do you water ski?
I love to water ski. It is simple as that. There is truly no feeling in the world that compares. It is a passion you can share with anyone, at any age or level. I hope to ski my entire life.
What would you tell a young athlete thinking about getting into the sport?
Focus on training hard but more importantly focus on having fun. Don't be afraid to reach out to anyone for advice. No matter where you are on your journey, we have all been there.
Share your favorite memory of Dave?
I will truly never forget my time working and traveling with Dave during the summer of '16 when I worked for Goode while in college. Something I will never forget is Dave yelling "I Love You!" to anyone in the driver seat when he was ready to go!
If you could only ski on one ski for the rest of time, which would you choose?
