Tell us a bit about yourself?

I’m a retired Paralympic snowboarder turned competitive wakesurfer. I also sell medical mobility equipment on the side. Gotta stay busy!

Now for the important questions, what’s your favourite Jack Link’s meat snack?

Though I do love the Turkey Jerky, I have to say that I’m all about the Beef Bars. They’ve got very few calories and all the protein and salty goodness in one small package!

Tell us how you feed your wild side?

I push myself out of my comfort zone. I never let my prosthetic leg limit me from trying something new and I will always keep exploring and taking on new challenges.

If you had the pleasure of hanging out with Sasquatch for a day, what would you guys do?

We would start off with a savoury breakfast, then head out for a solid morning of snowboarding. We would fuel up with a jerky snack then head to the backcountry for an afternoon of snowmobiling and finish the day off with a solid hot tub sesh. Rinse. Repeat.

What are you looking forward to seeing or accomplishing in 2020?

I want to officially see adaptive wakesurfing as a sanctioned sport, with points and a prize purse. I also want to try golfing (something I haven’t done since my accident) and maybe learn how to do a 360 on my surfboard and a re-entry on my sled.

What does your perfect day consist of?

Spending time with my boyfriend Jake and my dog Lenny while still being able to sled, workout and cook a healthy dinner.

What’s one surprising thing people may not know about you?

I’m a nerd at heart and a second-year welder. I have a dream of welding wheelchairs for the less fortunate.

Last, but not least, give us one interesting fact that our fans can bust out at a party.

I can drink off the soul of my foot! Oh, and I used to spin vinyl.
