Raised in the Sierra's, Brandy returns to Truckee after her successful pursuit of a degree in Athletic Training in Arizona. Prior to that, Brandy coached at the U14 and U16 levels with Ski and Snowboard Club Vail helping SSCV win USSA Alpine Club of the Year in 2014 and 2015. She started her career working with and coaching athletes right here on Donner Summit as a coach at SBSTA.
Her role of High Performance Coordinator will help us maximize our partnership with USSA as a designated USSA High Performance Center. She will be essential as we bolster our athletic program across all of our performance modules including: athlete performance, strength and conditioning, nutrition, mental training and medical. She will work as a point of contact between USSA and the staff who lead each of those modules at SBSTA.
As a former ski racer herself, Brandy raced at the Nor-Am level and travelled extensively in Europe with Fritz Vallant and Wolfgang Frandl, both well-known for their coaching exploits in Austria as World Cup coaches with the OSV. As both an athlete and a coach, Brandy brings unique experience to her multiple roles, but it's her ability to combine a fierce pursuit of excellence with a fun and easy-going nature that makes her a perfect fit for our community.
