EP9: Motherhood and Action Sports - Kimmy Fasani

Kimmy Fasani spent her most recent winter pregnant with her first child, something that wouldn’t be unusual except that Kimmy is a professional snowboarder whose career is based on completing technical descents in the big mountains of Alaska, British Columbia, and California. When your occupation—and your passion—is based on your physical prowess, taking even a little time off to start your family can put you in a unique position. During her pregnancy, Kimmy made it clear that becoming a mother didn’t mean she was retiring—a stand against the greatest stereotype women in sport have to deal with—and her sponsors stood by her. Kimmy and her sponsors shook things up and started a conversation, a conversation that was long overdue. Say Hello to Kimmy Fasani.
