Brenna is a Paralympic medalist who started snowboarding after she lost her leg to cancer. She went on to become a world champion not just once, but 3 times! She inspires on and off the slopes as a mom to her 3-year-old daughter. Her real power? She’s fearless.

To Brenna, fearless is about getting out of your comfort zone:

“To allow yourself to go for it and step out of that comfort zone is so powerful and so scary but so important, because that’s what’s going to get you to your goals.”

As a mom and an athlete, Brenna is always on the go.

“I like anything cozy. I’m usually running from the mountain or the gym, so I love having something easy but also stylish and flattering.”

“I don’t really know if there was ever a defining moment that led me to where I am, but I definitely think there was a defining mindset that got me here. It was when I stopped allowing my past to dictate my future. That was when things kept happening and amazing things came together in my life— at that moment when I just let it all go.”
