BIOGRAPHY:
Megan McJames is a professional skier, biker, baker and adventurer!

FIRST TRACKS:
At two years old, McJames learned to ski at Alta Ski Resort in Utah. She grew up doing many outdoor activities, including mountain biking, hiking, camping, soccer, and tennis, but especially fell in love with skiing. McJames is proud to have represented the United States in the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, and four World Championship events, including 2017 in St. Moritz. Most recently, McJames won the women's giant slalom at the U.S. Alpine Championships.

For the past four winters, McJames has been competing at the international level as an independent athlete, raising her own funding. Overcoming this challenge has been an exercise in athletic perseverance, passion, and work ethic. She believes that these traits translate from the athletic arena to the business world and, along with her athletic achievements, is a role model of these life skills.  

OFF THE SNOW:
In her off time, McJames is a student of finance at Westminster College, enjoys relaxing in the kitchen while baking, watching movies, and skiing powder. To follow McJames' journey, visit her website.
