Raised in Utah, I knew early on that I had a drive and passion for life that some people never know. I took those traits to the skating rink where I was recognized as 9thin the nation in the competitive figure skating world at age 13. I also fell in love with the mountains, climbing and snowboarding. My love for these sports kept me in Utah where I graduated from the University of Utah with a B.S. in Marketing and met my future husband, Josh. In 2002, we moved to Truckee and fell in love with Tahoe life. Our mutual passion for the outdoors, sports and performance wear design enabled us to build a business representing the global lifestyle brand Oakley in Northern California/Northern Nevada and were recognized as 2002 Rookie of the Year Top Sales Performance in North America.
