How long have you competed in lumberjack sports?
Since 1997, in college.

How did you get involved in lumberjack sports and when did you start competing?
I was taking a Forestry class at Cal Poly SLO and was introduced to the Logging Team and I couldn’t get enough of being outside, competing and traveling.  I decided after graduating to continue competing and then it gets in your blood.

How do you train for STIHL TIMBERSPORTS®?
I’m a gym rat for better or worse. I love every part of it. I have to travel to train, so I do what I can with making sure I am fit and ready when the season comes. I’m a binge trainer for the disciplines – fitting everything in when I can.

What’s your best/strongest STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® discipline?
Single buck. I’ve always loved it, even when it was the Buck and Chuck back in college with a traditional misery whip through Douglas Fir that took over two minutes.

What advice would you give to young female athletes interested in competing in the sport?
Train hard, have fun, enjoy the lifelong friendships that you can make in this sport, relish the travel and remember that every competition is an opportunity to learn and explore something new.
