Share with us your personal struggles with any physical sports and Skiing injuries and what you may wish to share with other individuals who may feel motivated by your experience to win over physical sports injuries in their career?
This year I had my first serious injury. I crashed skiing into a tree and fractured my transverse processes in my lower back. It happened just 4 weeks before our next competition and I really couldn’t imagine having to miss a competition. I was extremely lucky with the injury and that it wasn’t much worse and was able to start PT a week in. I was able to get back on snow for a few weeks in and felt good enough at 4 weeks to compete.
Of course, at this point, I had not skied a mogul course or train or jumped in a while and was much unprepared going into the competition. I was able to ski, but I was not mentally ready to be in the stat gate again, especially as I was thinking about reinjuring or making my back worse… It was a big learning experience for me to not rush things and to be okay with taking time off to heal and recover both physically and mentally.
Five athletic leisure brands you love to wear.
Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding professional mogul skiers who all are your fans and shall like to know from you for their climb to the ladder of success in the field of moguls skiing?
Have fun and don’t be afraid to fail and make mistakes. You have to push yourself and make those mistakes to learn and get better as a person and an athlete. There is always something to take away from those experiences. And have fun because that is all that really matters.
What do you wish to say about the website Womenfitness.net and the message for its visitors?
I am really stoked to be featured in Women Fitness alongside so many other incredible women. It’s something that is really cool to be a part of. One of the things I love most about being involved in women sports is the comradely between other athletes and the opportunity to empower other women and young girls.
