I love cycling... everything about going places on two wheels brings me joy. I've been riding outdoors since I was 3, and used my bike to commute during graduate school here in St. Louis. When I got into Triathlons, I took indoor cycling classes to stay consistent over the winter months and really enjoyed the comrade of the class participants and the interaction with the instructor teaching. It motivated me to get certified and I taught Y-cycle at my local YMCA for 3 years. I am stoked about this opportunity to be a guide for Steel Wheels and I can't wait to embark on this journey with my class.
When I am free, I am dreaming of blue skies and mapping out my next outdoor ride. I love supporting my local bike shops like The Hub and Big Shark. My favorite music group is and always will be Bon Jovi! I am a dog lover and a huge fan of Stray Rescue.
