Founder & Head Coach
I began my athletics career as a world-class competitive gymnast, where I had the opportunity to represent Canada at an international level. I carry the same drive, determination and work ethic required to be an Olympic-level gymnast into my career as a mountain bike athlete, coach, and mentor.
Since retiring as a gymnast, mountain biking has been an integral part of my life. The thrill of pushing my limits on my bike continues to drive my passion for the sport today!
I raced on the World Cup Downhill circuit for several years and then began exploring competition on the EWS and Multi-Day racing scenes, in addition to free-ride events. Nothing gets me more ‘jazzed’ than exploring new terrain and hitting big jumps!
Coaching and mentoring have always been a big part of my life.
Much of my success on the bike I owe to my training as a former world class gymnastics athlete and coach. For over 15 years I have been transferring those skills into mountain biking, coaching, and mentoring young cyclists to hone their skills and pursue their passions, whatever they might be.
