Gail started playing Ultimate when she moved to Chicago in 2007. She immediately fell in love. Over the past eight years, she has played league, college (Northwestern for grad school, go Gung-Ho!) and club level Ultimate. Her addiction to chasing plastic has also made for a great excuse to travel both domestically and internationally (favorite tournament: Paganello). Gail is also passionate about spreading Ultimate. She has been on the board of directors of Ultimate Chicago for the past three years and spends a majority of her efforts organizing and promoting youth Ultimate. Her influence on youth goes beyond Chicago through her participation in several USAU collaborations, from clinics to committees to GUM (Girls Ultimate Movement). She is beyond thrilled to be part of Ultimate Peace this year, an organization that is incredibly meaningful to her. In the few spare moments when she is not doing something ultimate related, she can be found skiing down a mountain or taking photographs.
