Birthday: January 30
Which athlete do you look up to? Lindsey Vonn has won more World Cup Races than any other woman in Alpine Ski Racing and is on track to become the winningest World Cup Ski Racer of all time. I also have a tremendous amount of respect for Mikaela Shiffrin and her accomplishments at such a young age. Both of these women work extremely hard, both on and off the slopes. It is their dedication, determination, drive to win, that inspires me the most.
Where do you get fashion inspiration? I spend as much time as I can outside. I am either skiing out on the mountains or out on the water boating or paddling in the warmer months. I like to mix it up a lot. Both environments need you to be ready for anything, when it comes to the changes in weather … especially in New England! Layering, with my own unique style, is the critical key for me… Needless to say, I am not hard to spot and usually ready for whatever comes my way!
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? I would like to ski the powder in Niseko, Japan and I would love to check out Exmouth, Australia for Bonefishing and exploring.
Favorite SKEA piece? I live in my Cargo Pants in Hologram and Didi Parka in Blue Chrome. Off the slopes, I love my black Liz Wool Coat and grey Makayla Skirt.
Skiing Accomplishments: It was like a dream when I started with bib #30 and I won a World Cup Downhill Race in Vail, Colorado on March 15th, 1986. I was on the US Ski Team from 1980-1989 finishing15 times in the top 15 in World Cup Speed events, with 3 times on the podium. I also won 6 US National Alpine Titles, was a member of the 87 and 89 World Championship Teams and was a member of the 1988 Olympic Team.
