How did you get into cycling?

I found my way to mountain biking from downhill ski racing after a series of knee surgeries put me off the snow and onto the dirt. My physical therapist suggested I try cycling so I borrowed a bike, headed to the trails, and its all history from there!

What do you hope to achieve as a Liv Global Ambassador?

Helping build and connect with a rich community of rad women across the globe.

Where is your favorite place to ride?

Kingdom Trails, VT

You're on a road trip to your favorite riding spot. Are you listening to a podcast or music? What's on your playlist?

Podcast! I love everything from Brene Brown!

If you could choose any person to ride with (anywhere in the world, living or not living), who would it be and why?

Oh man! I would have to say my dad. He has always been my adventure buddy since I was a little girl chasing him down the ski slope.

What would you say to a non-cyclist or someone who is just getting into the sport to encourage them?

Find a friend or group to ride with and show you the trails. Take a mountain bike lesson or clinic. Don't forget to giggle and smile, because bikes should be fun and make you feel like a kid again!

Do you have a favorite cycling tip to share?

Stand up out of your saddle when descending with "level pedals", it makes descending so much more fun, and less sketchy feeling.
