I'm back in Lake Placid, preparing for the Empire State Games. It's fun to be back with my teammates, but it was an adventure getting here. Checkout the blog for more details.


My Luge Beginnings

In September 2018 Luge was a sport reserved for people who lived in the snow all year, and certainly nothing I had to learn about. One year later I was measured for my Team USA team jacket. Clearly, a lot can happen in a year!


Off The Track

When I'm not speeding down the luge track at over 60 mph I can be found on the softball diamond, basketball or volleyball court. I love being a multi-sport athlete, and competing any nearly anything. I also enjoy traveling with my family, spending time with my friends and playing with my dogs.
