Saylor grew up in Woodland, Utah, trying every sport she could. At age four, she found skiing and immediately fell in love. She met Picabo Street before deciding to attend her academy. Saylor credits Picabo as significantly influencing her skiing and who she wants to be as an athlete and person. O’Brien joined the U.S. Para Alpine Team in 2022 and had a successful first season on the circuit. When she isn’t skiing, you can probably find her dying or cutting her hair, making lots of art, going to concerts, and hanging out with her dog.
