Brenna was not always a snowboard world champion; she began her love of sports with gymnastics when she was young. However, an osteosarcoma diagnosis in 2010 resulted in the amputation of her right leg, leading her down a different path. Just one month after her amputation, Huckaby got her first prosthetic leg, and she set her eyes on the slopes. She decided to leave Louisiana for Salt Lake City to help her achieve her new goal. She attached snowboarding with the same passion she did with gymnastics, and she began competing in 2013 while training with the National Ability Center in Utah. Following a few successful seasons on the mountain, she took a break from the slopes in early 2016 to give birth to her first daughter Lilah. She quickly returned to training in late August in preparation for the 2017 season. Brenna rose in the rankings in snowboardcross and banked slalom and is now known as one of the best female para snowboarders in the world. She is a four-time Paralympic medalist (3 gold, one bronze) and four-time World Champion. Huckaby is a two-time nominee (2018, 2022) and one-time winner (2018) of the “Best Female Athlete with a Disability” ESPY Award. When she isn’t snowboarding, you can find Brenna hiking, biking, playing with her daughters, watching Shameless, or volunteering as a gymnastics judge in Utah.
