Growing up, she played volleyball and basketball through Jr. high and High School then fell in love with outdoor sports once she started college. She now enjoys backpacking, snowboarding, climbing and road biking anytime she gets a chance. During her last couple years at the University of Utah she received her Padi scuba certification, American Sailing Association 1 certification and her Avalanche 1 certification and is planning on getting her Wilderness First Responder this semester.
