"I'm always inspired to fill my life full of adventure by my home town of Bend OR. In Bend people hold the outdoors and adventure above almost all else. I am very passionate about cycling. Ever sinceI did my first mtn bike race, I fell in love with the sport and the feeling of accomplishment I get from every race or adventure.
This year I was the Oregon State 10-13 junior girls mtn bike state series Champion. In addition, I won the junior girls 10-13 Oregon Mudslinger MTB series. In the next year I would like to push myself to train for nationals. I would also like to work on simplifying my life so I can focus on the things that really matter to me. I always choose Skout Backcountry to fuel my adventures because I care about eating only real and organic food."
