White water kayaker, skier, professional speaker, and marketing professional– there is nothing I can’t do when I set my mind to it. As a passionate kayaker and professional marketer I have a lot of experience under my belt at 24 years of age. I am highly motivated, and driven to explore and push the limits of my potential in all I do. At 15 years old, I knew I was destined for the wild, and unpredictable life of adventure which I discovered during my first river trip and the opportunity to make a difference in something larger than myself. However, in the incredibly demanding sport of whitewater kayaking, it's taken a lot of hard work and determination to push myself towards my accomplishments and the goals I continue to work towards.
It can be tough to be a girl in a male dominated sport, while I love paddling with the my guy friends, I want to lead and empower women with the skills I have learned through the sport and share those experiences with each other.
I’ve learned to be aggressive, respectful of my environment, trust my gut instinct, commit 100% to the task at hand, always look positive, and to adapt quickly. Confidence, respect, aggressiveness, and hunger are what fuel me as an athlete and inspire me as a marketer.
Inspiration comes in many different forms. It is those I look up too that I've met on the river along the way who have really had a lasting impact on my life. They have inspired me with their motivation and thirst for life, it’s safe to say it has rubbed off on me in a big way!
Last year, I created my own brand extension ‘She Goes’ which I look forward to nurturing and growing in a way that provides value to my personal brand. I’m looking forward to creating and executing several events to bring women together to explore the limits of their potential, inspiring and empowering each other to dream big, work hard, and stay humble.
I look forward to the future as I prepare to graduate from Western Washington University this spring and combine my passion for the outdoors with a career in Marketing and Creative Digital Media. I look forward to innovating the outdoor industry with heart, talent, and attitude, to create and market the best products and brands I have the opportunity to work with. I look forward to continuing to live my brand each day exploring and confidently challenge the limits of my abilities as a marketer and as an athlete, boldly pursuing perfection in everything I do.
