She spends her time advocating for bicycles through her organization Bike Durango, and helps folks share their stories and love for bicycles in her sporadically published zine, Ride Your Bike!

When she isn't writing, advocating, or riding her bike around town, she is most likely mountain biking with her friends, skiing groomers or drinking coffee, reading a book, and snuggled up next to her dog, Calvin.
