I am excited to enter my fourteenth season at Sugarbowl. I acquired my PSIA Level Two Certifification in 1998, was nominated top 100 ski instructors in America in Skiing Magazine 1999, (by our director here at Sugar Bowl). I have recently joined Sugarbowls' Mountain Sports Learning Center Staff training team in 2006. I teach adult and children group lessons and specialize in privates of all ages.
I grew up in Yosemite and have lived in the Sierra all of my life. My passion for skiing started when I took my first lessons at the age of five, at Badger Pass in 1970.
I am the mother of two wonderful young adults. I participate in African and bellydance regularly and this drives an interest in helping my students apply their experience from other leisure and fitness activities to improve their skiing. Aside from bringing a wide variety of techniques to teaching, I have one basic belief which is to build a strong foundation of skills to help my students reach their personal goals.
Although I enjoy all aspects of teaching, being out with just the ladies is rewarding beyond belief. When we can reach new levels and be part of your enjoyment and smiles is a great feeling! It is a joy and honor to be out there with you, guiding you to dance with the mountain! Thank you!
