From a young age, I knew I had a passion for the great outdoors. Growing up in Des Moines, Iowa I graduated high school and headed west to attend Colorado State University where I studied Apparel Merchandising and Business. Upon Graduation is where I truly submerged myself in the outdoor community. From seeing mountains for the first time, to learning how to snowboard my heart finally felt at home with this new community. After Graduation, I accepted an assistant buying position with Bakccountry.com. From there, I relocated to Seattle, WA to continue my assistant buying career with Zumiez. It was in 2015 where I switched my career path over to sales and was managing Key Accounts for Burton snowboards. I’m happy to continue to submerge myself in this industry by joining Waypoint in April 2022 as the Ski Channel Manager + Key Account Manager for Helly Hansen, and Vasque.
