I made my first tandem jump in 1982 at the age of 5, making me a third generation skydiver. I now have over 11,000 jumps, am an IAD/AFF Instructor S&TA, Demo Jumper, Highlight Pro Skydiving Team Member, World Record organizer, and USPA National Director. I am also a 3-time National Champion in Freestyle, and have 23 World Records. Oh yes – mostly importantly, I’m a MOM!
I’ve co-organized the successful 2003, 2005, 2007, 2010 & 2013 Women’s Vertical World Records (WVWR). I have also organized all over the United States including famous boogies such as Skydive Chicago’s “Summerfest,” Skydive Carolina’s “Carolina Fest,” Skydive Elsinore’s “Chick’s Rock”, and Skydive Orange’s “Orange Boogie,” as well as organized events in Canada, Mexico, Australia and Italy.
I also am the creator of 4-Way VFS competitive skydiving, was a co-owner of Skydive Chicago from 2003-2007, and published 3 books known as the Sugar Alpha Chronicles. I have also worked with Dropzone Marketing for the last four years as the Content Manager, from time-to-time, write for many skydiving industry magazine articles including Parachutist, Blue Skies Magazine, and http://www.SkydiveMag.com.
