ABOUT: I’m a freelance graphic designer, and also design and publish backcountry skiing guidebooks with my partner. I’m also the Rocky Mountain Ambassador for SheJumps.org which promotes female participation in outdoor activities.

I got my first mountain bike in 1988 and started riding state forest roads and trails around New England. In college, I rode mountain bikes as dry land training with my alpine ski team. My first race was in upstate New York in 1989.
