I am 23 years old and from Madison, Wisconsin and now live in Missoula, MT. I graduated from Marian University in Indianapolis where I studied biology and raced collegiately. I am a professional cyclist who races cyclocross and mountain bikes. I started going to races with my parents from an early age and when I was nine years old, I did my first cyclocross race. I was immediately hooked and the next year I started mountain bike racing. When I was 14, I decided cycling was what I enjoyed most and chose to pursue my dreams in the sport. Since then, I have competed at both national and international levels, earning wins and podiums at professional UCI races. I have won numerous national championships, raced around the world on three different continents, in nearly ten different countries and represented the U.S. in World Cup events and World Championships in both cyclocross and mountain bike disciplines.
