Bio: Born and raised in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, I grew up wanting to be a professional mountain biker. After graduating from Appalachian State University with a degree in Recreation Management/Outdoor Experiential Education I moved to Aspen, Colorado to teach skiing for the Aspen Skiing Company in the winter and guide mountain bike, raft and hiking trips in the summer. I've been co-guiding the California Lost Coast Adventure trip for several years and love nothing more than getting people outdoors to experience the wonder of nature from the seat of a mountain bike. When I'm not guiding trips for Sacred Rides I am the Trail Rides Program Manage for Trips for Kids Marin, a nonprofit that offers transformative mountain bike experiences for under-served youth in the Bay Area. Hope to see you on the trail soon!
My 'Sacred Ride': Riding through the Redwoods in Northern California. Though not one specific trail, anytime I ride through these amazing giants I feel humbled and a deep sense of awe and peace. Come ride through some Redwood groves with us and see what I mean... It's inspiring.
