She formerly worked in public relations at Mountain Sports International for outdoor action sports events and as the on-camera field announcer for the Freeskiing World Tour. In 2015 she transitioned to competing as a skier on the Freeskiing World Tour and placed 3rd in her first competition in Verbier, Switzerland.
