Brenna Huckaby, a three-time Paralympic gold medalist and five-time World Champion, was first introduced to para snowboarding in 2013, after losing her right leg to cancer at age 14. She quickly achieved success in the sport, landing her first World title only two years into her competitive career.
In her Paralympic debut at the 2018 PyeongChang Games, Huckaby cemented her place at the top of the para snowboarding world, winning two gold medals, including the first ever gold won in the banked slalom discipline. A leading voice in disability advocacy, Huckaby orchestrated a multi-faceted inclusivity campaign in the lead up to the 2022 Paralympic Games, for which she earned the right to compete in medal events initially limited to less impaired athletes. Huckaby went on to win gold and bronze at the Beijing Games and continues to advocate for increased disability representation and inclusion in all areas of society.
A mom of two young daughters, Huckaby uses her platform to speak openly about parenting, overcoming cancer, mental health and body positivity. She has been featured in national TV campaigns with brand partners and on covers of publications such as Parents and InRegister magazines. Huckaby recently partnered with female-empowerment leader Athleta as part of the Power of She Collective.
