Joey than went on to compete in college and at the national level. The inspiration of NSAA, the Alaska ski community and the years skiing at Kincaid inspired Joey to come back to Anchorage post college and start coaching.

Most recently, Joey worked for USSA as the Nordic Program Manager and attended the Sochi, Olympics as a Team Leader for all the Nordic sports.

She is a school counselor and coach and has been skiing for over 30 years. “I grew up recreating and racing in Anchorage. After skiing in college, I started coaching for all levels and ages. Once I had my own kids, I didn’t have as much time to coach but still wanted to give back to the amazing Nordic ski community…so I ran for a spot on the NSAA Board. I hope to help increase membership and visibility of NSAA and promote the great sport of cross-country skiing.” In her free time, Sara enjoys biking, triathlons, running and shopping.
