Fun Facts!

I have a sardine tattoo. Eat more sardines.

I am a founding member of the Lady Gnar Shredders, a developmental bike racing org based in Central Ohio, which still thrives today.

In 2013 I obtained the 4th fastest recorded women’s time in Tour Divide, a 2800mile mtb race going along the continental divide from Canada to the Mexican boarder, completed in 23 days.

In my retirement from pro racing, I now play volleyball (pickup and rec leagues), lift weights, run, ride many types of bikes, and love simply being active.
