Why Little Bellas?

My daughter has been a Little Bella for 7 years or so. I've gotten to appreciate Little Bellas through her experience. It is just an incredible program that is making a significant and positive impact on girls and on the sport of mountain biking overall. I'm so proud to be involved in getting more girls on bikes.

I have a great memory for people and their stories.

What's a fun fact that people don't know about you?

I'm fluent in Spanish

Favorite color? Blue

What's your favorite Little Bellas experience?

This fall, I attended the first ever Little Bellas Women's Clinic. It was a ton of fun to have a similar experience to that of our girls. It was great learning the mechanics of mountain biking and to ride with a great group of women who were all encouraging each other.

Do you race? Ride for fun?

I've never raced but I do ride for fun. I grew up in the Central Adirondacks when mountain biking was fairly new. We had a ton of trails pretty much out our backdoor and mountain biking became one of my favorite things to do. There was one trail in particular that was like a roller coaster ride and I loved it.
