Interview Questions
Where is your favorite place to ride? The Chilcotins.

If you weren't a Pro Rider, what would you be doing? What I am doing now! I'm a strength and conditioning coach for high performance athletes and alongside that, I run several mountain bike development programs for youth.

Favorite Riders? The list is long, but I have to say I am continually inspired by Fox teammate and long time friend Claire Buchar - Who is quite likely the most determined, passionate, dedicated rider I have ever met.

Best thing about riding for Fox Racing? Fox Racing is family - Not just for me, but for everyone. They truly want to build us all up, and you can see it not only through their commitment to innovation and forward thinking product, but in the events they choose to support and the people they affiliate themselves with.

Favorite Fox Product? My go to kit: Women's Attack Short, Women's Flexair Jersey, Flux Helmet, Women's Sidewinder Glove.

Shoutouts? My dad who taught me 4 main pillars in life: Generosity, humility, compassion and justice. Can't forget my mum, my two best friends (my brothers), my little girl Anna and fiance Yoann Barelli and of course my dog Jaxon for supporting me through all the waves of life. :)
