How long have you competed in lumberjack sports? 
Since about 2015.

How did you get involved in lumberjack sports and when did you start competing?
I first began sawing in the Jack & Jill sawing discipline. From there, I ventured into the others.

How do you train for STIHL TIMBERSPORTS®?
I train the disciplines as they are, in addition to moderate strength and cardio training. I’ve been fortunate to train with other competitors nearby, and they’ve provided invaluable insights throughout the years.

What’s your best/strongest STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® discipline? 
Out of the three we currently have in the women’s division, I would say the underhand chop. But that could change!

What advice would you give to young female athletes interested in competing in the sport?
Observe your fellow competitors, and be an active listener.
