I was born in Geneva, Switzerland and grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago, IL. I discovered bike racing in 2017 when I raced the women's Little 500 at Indiana University Bloomington. I fell in love! I started racing crits, road, and eventually gravel and mountain bike races, too. I started racing full time May of 2019. I love both the physical and mental challenge that bike racing provides. I also love how empowering this sport is! In spite of some factors that might indicate otherwise, I think cycling is a predominantly honest sport: if you put in the work, and do so consistently, you'll see tangible progress. It is brutally hard work, but it is rewarding.

 

I'm incredibly excited to race with Wolfpack in 2021. They're the first team I've been on and I know I have a whole lot to learn from each and every one of my teammates. I am eager to absorb and apply the knowledge they share with me, and contribute to some Wolfpack wins!
