A lover of time trials, mountains, and time trials up mountains, you will find me giddy on the start line of stage races, hill climbs, and any road race that features a long painful climb. This year I'm excited for a new challenge: backing off from racing to focus on helping our women's team develop. You might also find me looking for new gravel routes in the lower Mainland.

Outside of road and gravel cycling, I'm also in my happy place running, swimming, doing yoga and trying to do a pull-up. When I'm not chasing an endorphin rush, you can find me geeking out over databases and KPIs at the office.

I am very happy to be returning for my fourth season with GSC. I tried my first Tuesday Nighter back in 2009, but quickly decided the sport was not for me. Instead, I pursued mountain biking and dabbled in triathlon before making my way back to racing in 2016. This year I look forward to returning to the peloton after missing most of last season due to injury. I strive to help my teammates get to the the top step of the podium all while improving race tactics and having fun. I also want to encourage more women to ride their bikes and try their first race.   

When I am not racing and training, you will find me riding my mountain bike, exploring on my touring bike, ski touring, hiking, or finding some way to spend time outside. I also enjoy reading books and baking post-ride treats!

I bought my first road bike in 2015 and have been totally obsessed ever since. The sport of cycling keeps me challenged and intrigued as there is always opportunity to improve whether it be physical, mental or tactical. 2019 will be my fourth season racing with Glotman Simpson with the exception of the leap year I took traveling and racing around Australia. I look forward to building friendships and relationships with the women I race and ride with in the community. I love a good hill climb and inviting me to a ride up a mountain with you is the key to my heart.

I’m so excited to return to GSC again in 2019. I’m looking forward to a role as race ambassador, primarily focusing my energy within the women's’ skills clinics, groups rides and hopefully encouraging more women into racing. However, you’ll still find me helping my teammates out at the local weekly races!

Outside of cycling I split my time between triathlon and UX design; I've also been told I’m a crazy cat lady in training. I love climbing hills, climbing mountains, anything that isn’t flat and racing in the heat. When I’m not cycling or training for triathlon, I like to spend time at yoga, at the gym, hiking, snowshoeing or cooking. I definitely need coffee in the morning, and my favorite food is sushi.

I started cycling in 2013, and racing in 2015. This season will be my 4th season racing with GS, and my 3rd as a race ambassador. I love long climbs, races of attrition and I am working hard on learning to love criteriums! I'm excited to do lots of racing with my GS teammates this season and also hope to help encourage more women to get into cycling and racing. 

Outside of road cycling, I enjoy mountain biking, cyclocross races, and long gravel adventures with friends. I am also a full time master's student studying turbulent combustion modelling at UBC.

I love cycling! Over the years I’ve gone from riding a banana seat bike at the park equipped with handlebar tassels to street riding to bike polo to road cycling and eventually discovered a passion for criteriums and racing at the velodrome. I enjoy being a part of a team and feel honoured to be a member of the GSC squad. This year I hope to take on a number of hill climbs and work together with teammates to achieve our goals. 

In addition to cycling I enjoy music, photography, laughing and spending time with family and friends. 

I look forward to many more miles in the saddle with the GSC Race Team and Club!

Item you could never leave for a ride without: cash - you never know if you will need it for a candy pit-stop or a bus ride home after flatting!

I got into cycling after finishing a varsity rowing career. I was looking for a sport to keep me active with a focus on having fun while being competitive. This is my second season with GSC and I couldn’t be happier than to spend my time training and racing with these powerhouse women. This season I am shifting the focus at bit more towards the gravel scene, but I will still be targeting some local and destination races.

Outside of cycling I enjoy running, rock climbing, and cooking. I also enjoy bike packing adventures ranging from 24 hours to 24 days!
