I am originally from Stuttgart, Germany and grew up in Seefeld, Austria where my passion for skiing began. During my early years I was a ski racer In Austria and Germany, traveling throughout the European Alps with my fellow team mates. Memories I will cherish forever. At 15 I moved to Southern California to accept a Track and Field scholarship to UCLA. After College I ran for both the world famous Santa Monica Track Club and the German National Team. Eventually I found my way to Boulder and the EMSC community. Both of my boys grew up skiing in the junior race program and are now racing in the Core (U12 & U14). I’ve coached YSL and love nothing more than to watch these young athletes build self-confidence and independence through skiing. I joined the LERT Board of Directors two years ago and simply strive for this program to be one of your child’s and your most memorable experiences.
