Amie Engerbretson is a pro skier who understands the importance of marketing yourself and creating your own brand more than most.  Amie started as a dancer and didn’t make it in that world, so after a 4-year break, Amie decided she wanted to become a pro skier… she had a path, she’s been a ski model with a photographer dad since she was a kid, and she got a ton of coverage.  But Amie wanted more than just ski modeling, she never took no for an answer and made her dreams happen.
