I first started skiing when I was 6 year old at my local dry slope Sheffield Ski Village and completely fell in love with it! As long as I can remember I've been skiing! I started doing freestyle when I was 8 years old as well as ski racing and moguls! I did my first competition when I was 9 years old and that's when I realised it was something I would like to do.

I started skiing more and more and every week and started going away and competing! My first international competition was when I was 14 years old in 2011 in Switzerland. I was competing against some of my idols including Kaya Turski and Sarah Burke. I managed to come away with 2nd place. After that I started competing in bigger competitions and started travelling the world.

When ski Slopestyle was first announced it was being included in the 2014 Winter Olympics I knew I wanted to be there and to represent team GB.

In 2012, with 2 years to go until the Winter Olympics I tore my ACL which meant 9 months off skiing and then with less than 9 months to go my ACL injury re-accorded meaning there was a slight chance I wasn’t going to be fit in time and make the Olympic Team. During my rehab, I worked really hard and just two weeks before the game, I was announced on the team proving a lot of people wrong who said I was’t going to make it.

It was something I will never forget and I'm working towards hopefully representing Great Britain in many more X Games and Olympic Games.
