Info About Me

I started snowboarding in 2010, when my parents went to a free weekend at Massanutten (Thanks Ms. Brothers).  In 2012, I started riding with the Massanutten Ski and Snowboard Team.  Thanks to excellent instructors like Scott Wooten and Chad Sims in this first couple years I made great strides with my snowboarding.  I had great peers too, like Whitney LeMay, who encouraged me to get better and faster (since she waited for no one, it was and still is, keep up or get left).  Because of her, I decided I wanted to try competing in Boardercross in 2013, but managed to break my arm on New Years Eve and lost almost the entire season before I got back on snow.  This is how I ended up with my nickname of Fragile (pronounce Frah-geel-a, as in A Christmas Story).  Whitney even brought me bubble wrap the next season when I finally got to compete in the 2014-2015 Season.  This started my love of racing.  Two seasons later, it was suggested that I try Alpine Riding to help improve my racing and I found my true snowboarding love.  I began competing part-time in Hard Boots and in an effort to advance my Alpine Riding joined the Ski Roundtop Racing Club (SRRC) in PA.  They are an Alpine Snowboard only Team and have some of the best riders in the world.  I cut 6+ seconds on average off my run times by the time I reached Nationals.  In December of 2018, I completed my USASA Level 100 Coaching Certification.  Just this summer, I was invited to become part of the Donek Amateur Snowboard Team, along with a couple other of my SRRC Teammates.
