What is your USPA License Number?
Please list your USPA Ratings (if any):
How many jumps do you have?
When you were a kid, were there any early activities that might indicate you’d one day become a skydiver?
I didn’t do anything as a kid but watch TV. I had no idea I’d like jumping out of planes when I grew up.
What was the circumstance that led you to the DZ for the first time to make your very first skydive?
I started jumping in the military and it took only once before I was hooked. It wasn’t long after my first jump that I transitioned to the sport side of skydiving and got my USPA rating(s).
What made you want to continue skydiving after your first jump?
The thrill. I had so much fun after my first jump there was no way I couldn’t keep jumping. I was also surrounded by jumping and skydivers because of my job, so it was kind of a given that I’d make my way into the sport.
What’s the best / most memorable skydive you’ve ever made?
My most memorable skydive was one of the first ones I did outside of the military. I was incredibly nervous because the sport side and the military side are so incredibly different . I showed up at the dropzone and told everyone my background and they were super supportive of me. They guided me through everything I needed to know and were super understanding about any things I didn’t know about the sport side of skydiving. Then they invited me to do a four way, which is something I had never done before. A complete stranger let me borrow her jumpsuit and I jumped with some incredibly awesome and knowledgeable people. I had so much fun but, more importantly, I learned a ton. That experience was what I wanted to make sure I modeled for newer jumpers that came after me.
If you could jump with anyone in the world, who would you like to jump with and why?
I would love to jump with my husband one day. He’s done a tandem once, but I’d really like for him to be able to jump solo so we can share the experience together.
