US SKI TEAM MEMBER
Libby ski raced for the United States Ski Team for ten years. During her tenure on the Team, she ranked 10th in the world in Super-G, won a U.S. National Title, and achieved her dream of becoming an Olympian by competing in the 2006 Olympic Games. Throughout her career as a professional ski racer, Libby battled back from countless injuries and helped lead her team into one of the strongest eras in American women’s ski racing history. In 2008, in favor of preserving her health as well as the pursuit of her many other interests, Libby retired from her sport.
Shortly after leaving her athletic career behind, Libby graduated with a degree in Philosophy from Dartmouth College and earned her yoga instructor certification in Goa, India. A practitioner since 1997, Libby has been teaching yoga and mindfulness since 2009.
In 2012, Libby founded ZGiRLS, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering girls in sports. After winning 2nd place in the 2013 University Washington Business Plan Competition and graduating from law school, Libby and All-American skier Jilyne Higgins began working full-time to grow ZGiRLS into the nationally recognized organization that it is today.
Originally from Seattle, Libby now lives in Park City, Utah with her husband, son, and dog Oslo. When she’s not busy running ZGiRLS, Libby can be found teaching yoga, making public speaking appearances, or adventuring in the mountains.
