While many see running as their first sport, others know that running is a great way to keep strong during their off season. Megan is one of those athletes, and we have welcome the opportunity to support her athletic endeavors as she chases all her world cup (and beyond) ski dreams . While she loves running and many other outdoor activities she really shines on the ski slope, and has competed in the past two winter Olympics! WOW!
Here is a little about her in her own words;
Hi, I'm Megan: Professional Skier, Biker, Baker, Adventurer!
At 2 years old I learned to ski at Alta Ski Resort in Utah. I grew up doing many outdoor sports including mountain biking, hiking, camping, soccer and tennis but especially fell in love with skiing! I am proud to have represented the United States in the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi and four World Championship events including 2017 in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Most recently I won the women’s giant slalom at the US Alpine Championships.
For the past four winters I have been competing at the international level with no support from the national team. Overcoming this challenge has been an exercise in athletic perseverance, passion and work ethic. I believe that these traits translate from the athletic arena to the business world and, along with my athletic achievements, I hope to be a role model of these life skills!
In my off time, I am a student of finance at Westminster College, enjoy relaxing in the kitchen while baking and watching movies.
