Scholarly and Professional Achievements

I have always loved the outdoors and have continued to pursue certifications in many outdoor adventure related areas. These include certifications through the Professional Ski Instructors Association: Adaptive Level I and Nordic Donwhill Level II, as well as adaptive skiing. In 2017, I was recognized as an Outdoor Legend by the Lees-McRae Outdoor Recreation Management program.

Personal Interests

I am also the Regional Director for Catalyst Sports for the Boone and Charlotte Chapters. Catalyst Sports is a non-profit organization based out of the Atlanta, GA area that provides outdoor adventure activities, including rock climbing and adaptive snow skiing, for people with physical disabilities. I also love trail running and hiking, camping, cross-country skiing, and telemark skiing at local ski resorts.
