I am an east coast transplant who found myself in Nevada by way of Florida, Australia, SE Asia, Colorado, and California.
The Road to Cycling:
An ex-Division 1 Rower hungry for a new sport, I decided to try triathlons during grad school in 2007. Never one to be discouraged by a lack of equipment, I completed my first sprint triathlon on my mountain bike (on the road) while wearing a camelbak. I purchased my first road bike and a pair of bike shorts in 2008 after deciding those items were necessary for the next triathlon. Two triathlons later, I took off for an adventure abroad. After 10 months outside of the US (and away from my bike) I spent a summer in Almont, Colorado where I mountain biked and learned that I loved riding my road bike- without the swimming and the running.
Fast Forward to a move to California in November 2009. I spent the winter learning how to ski and looking forward to bike season. Settled and ready for the thrill of competition, I entered and raced in my first criterium on Memorial Day May 2010. Since then, I’ve been hooked.
Off the bike:
When not riding my bike, I enjoy back country skiing, nordic skiing, running, practicing yoga, traveling, gardening, and wrangling our backyard chickens. Oh, and I run my own Immigration Law practice.
