I started crashing bikes in my hometown of Rock Springs, Wyoming when I was about 9 or 10. My family moved to Farmington, New Mexico when I was 16. I did the teenager thing, then the young adult thing, got married and had a couple of awesome kiddos; sadly there were no bikes. In 2015 my husband and I decided to build a house out by the trails in Farmington and at the same time decided to get some bikes. We went on our first bike ride on Kinsey - Seven Sisters loop. I almost died that day, not really, just felt like I did. Long story short, fell back in love with the sport. Did a couple cross country races and a gravity enduro series. My favorite place to ride down south was defiantly Moab! Fast forward to 2019, my husband and I quit our corporate jobs in New Mexico, packed up our stuff, drove 1,168 miles up to Wenatchee and started a business. Here we are! 2022! It’s been an odd transition, but none the less, we love the area and the PNW; it’s a giant playground!
I’m thankful I was able to get on the Evergreen team. Watching the kids progress at the camps and become confident on a bike by the end of the week is THE BEST!MTB Facts: Fun Facts:
