I got my USPA skydiving license in 2005 and have been doing about 100 skydives a year. Right now (July 2013) I have over 800 skydives. I have trained with Pat McGowan, Kai Wolf, Josh Hall and Christy Frikken in Perris Valley, California. In Germany I have been coached by Uwe Soppa, Mike Vetter, Dieter Schwarz, Dieter Kirsch, Pitt Weber and Christoph Aarns. I've also had the pleasure of doing Bigway camps with the Dadalus Team and with Kate Cooper and friends. In 2011 I was on the team that broke the German Women's Skydive Formation Record with 84 jumpers leaving from 5 airplanes in Eisenach.
