In her spare time, she is an avid adventurer and paraglider pilot. When she isn’t seeking thrills in the sky, she finds joy in the backcountry on hiking trails, or on her snowboard. She also enjoys white water by raft or SUP, and speedy singletrack on her mountain bike. She is often joined by her partner, Tim and her fuzzy canine companions, Pilot and Wheels. Floof, her marvelous feline, keeps the adventures closer to home.
