Getting Into Sport: Started skiing at age three…  Her mother would bring her to work where she would ski with the young kids being coached… Outside Interests: Runs a ski scarf business called IGOTSWAGG that she started because she loves fashion and style… She could not ski without her scarf and wanted something unique so she started making her own in fun fabrics… Also made them for teammates and then began selling in stores and online… Now international competitors are also wearing them… Hopes to add more products to her line as a post-skiing career… Enjoys mountain biking, tennis, surfing and paddle boarding… Odds and Ends: Nickname: M-P… Favourite motto: Ski fast, no fear… Always listens to music in her helmet while riding the chair lift, mostly rap and hip hop…


FIS World Championships: 2013 – 28th (GS), 28th (SG); 2011 – 24th (GS), 24th (SG); 2009 – 35th (GS)
