I learned to ski in my hometown of Gilford, NH alongside my little brother, Alex. In high school I ran cross country, skied and played softball before skiing for the University of Vermont while studying Athletic Training. My biathlon experience began during the summer after my sophomore year in college, at a Nordic camp in Jericho, VT. I continued to “dabble” in it on off days and during the post season until I graduated from UVM and joined the development team full time. I love the added challenge of shooting and skating has always been my forte so biathlon makes a pretty good match for me!
