Keynote Speaker

Rob and I travel the world as a ski racing team and motivational speakers. In my speech, How to do the Impossible Every Day, we reveal the 3 secrets to leading and empowering teams to overcome obstacles and go for the gold.

Invite me or both Rob and I to inspire your organization. We can help power up your leadership, teamwork, and make your next event the most unique and inspiring one your group has ever experienced.

How do you do the impossible?

You can’t do it alone.

I was twenty-nine and almost totally blind when my first guide, my father, learned how to partner with visually impaired skiers. He skied in front of me and gave me instructions, and I skied for the first time in my life. Four years later I met Rob, a former collegiate ski racer, who became my husband and guide; together, we have made history.

And we discovered the secrets that can empower a team to do the impossible.

As Team Vision4Gold, Rob and I have won 3 Paralympic Bronze medals, 4 World Championship medals, and over 50 Alpine Skiing World Cup medals. We were the first husband and wife visually impaired ski race team to compete and medal for Team USA at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Paralympic Games.

We earned bronze medals in both the downhill and Super Combined events, and ended that season with the overall and Super-G World Cup titles.
