"Fall down 7 times, get up 8. This is a quote that my Mom told me when I was younger and it has always stuck with me. It’s something I follow both physically in skating, and generally throughout my life!"
I was born in Hawaii which is where I fell in love with skating and surfing. When I moved to California, I decided to focus on skateboarding and take it to the next level. I was the first female to qualify for the Dew Tour Park Am contest in 2016, skating in the same competition alongside the boys. Since then, I have continued to pave my way through the sport with 2 X Games medals and multiple podium finishes in Vans Park Series competitions. In 2019, I was named to the first-ever U.S. Skateboarding Team and am excited to be a part of the team again in 2020!

What is your current goal?
My goal is to become one of the first skateboarders to compete in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
What has been your biggest challenge as a professional skateboarder so far?
I endured my first major injury in August of 2019. I had a slight tear on my labrum in my shoulder and had to get surgery right away. It was one of the hardest things to overcome physically and mentally but it made me stronger. I am now back skating and super stoked!
