I’ve been riding bikes for as long as I can remember. I grew up racing cross-country and it is my passion for mountain biking that got me to move to BC when I was 20 years old. Now it’s 10 years later and I’m still as in love with this sport as I was a teenager discovering the world through cycling. My bike takes me to the most amazing places … it enables me to meet wonderful people and it allows me to continuously challenge myself. This is precisely why I want to contribute to getting more women on bikes. I want more women to experience the joy and excitement of a mountain biking lifestyle.
Helping more women to discover mountain biking is the reason why I became a certified Professional Mountain Biking Instructor in 2014. I love sharing my knowledge and excitement for mountain biking with others and there’s nothing more rewarding than helping someone ride a feature or section of trail they never thought they could tackle. This year I’m taking things to the next level by bringing the Bell Joy Ride to life in North Vancouver. I couldn’t think of a better way to help foster a vibrant female riding community and to share my love for mountain biking!
When I’m not riding bikes, you’ll usually find me on skis, on a surfboard or eating ice cream while planning my next adventure. I fund my outdoors endeavors by working in social media in the tourism industry, getting people stoked on another big passion of mine: travelling. It goes without saying that, for me, riding bikes and travelling go hand-in-hand. So does good food and good company.
