Becoming the 1st female World Champion in IWA circuit history and watching my husband and my team doing amazing things out on the water & setting new records.

Which C&A Pro Skis do you use and why?
The MINI ski. It’s all I have EVER used for waterx!

Who are your heroes and why?
My husband. Not only because of the things he has accomplished on the water racing Pro waterx, but all the time he takes working/building our sleds & many others. He is always making sure others are successful.

Polaris Colt

Grantsburg 2015. Being hit off the starting line and thinking I just had a concussion. Ended up in United hospital 2 weeks later because I was going into septic shock. Scary stuff.

Spending time with family and friends/team off the water. Riding side by sides. Promoting our racing/sport/team all year long. Entertaining people online (fighting meme wars haha).

Do you have any superstitions at the track? Tell us about them…:
My husband and I do the EXACT same thing everytime when I’m getting ready to line up on the starting line. I don’t even know the last time he WASNT there. Throws me off my game if I don’t have him around.

What are your ultimate snowmobile career goals?
Big wins are great of course. I’d like to TIE my husband for # of world championships lol. I’m pretty happy to be a big part of getting the word out about waterx. I’ll go strong until I retire from racing (no plans of leaving it soon tho!).
