I have been skiing since the age of 6 and have loved every minute of it.

In 2011, I was invited to join the British Disabled Ski Team Development Squad and started racing in November 2012 with my Mum as my guide.

Since then things have changed a great deal and I now have a wonderful guide in Brett Wild. He is in the Royal Navy and has been released for the next 4 years to guide me to the Paralympic games in Beijing 2022. We get on so well and I really can trust him to get me down a mountain safely and fast.

We also have a team of coaches, physiotherapists, a psychologist and managers, who are all helping us to reach our potential as Alpine skiers.

I was lucky enough to go to The Sochi Paralympics in 2014 and compete for Great Britain in the Slalom and Giant Slalom, where I came 5th in both events. I also carried the flag at the opening ceremony.

Sochi was a fantastic rehearsal for the Pyeongchang games, where my guide, Brett Wild and I were proud to have won three medals.

I have competed in two Winter Paralympics and two World Championships.

Our next big goal is Beijing in 2022 but there will be plenty of challenges between then and now!

Covid-19 Lockdown

As I sit and contemplate finishing off my University course work, before knuckling down to some serious revision for my end of year, online exams in May and June, I’m distracted by the thought of 667 days left before the 2022 Winter Paralympics in Beijing.
