I was born and raised in Boise, with 1.5 years of exploration in Bellingham, WA. My background in the Boise scene begins with the inspiration of my grandparents that were career volunteers with three different organizations. Watching their involvement in our community inspired me at a young age to be just as involved, and today find myself grounded in the foundation of grassroots organization through volunteerism and community involvement.

I am passionate about biking for the connection it gives me to the community, and find Boise Bicycle Project’s dedication to bicycle access and education to be essential in building a strong and inclusive community. I look forward to sharing my dedication to empowering our community, and sharing my commitment to fostering a safe bicycling environment that feels accessible and inclusive to everyone in Boise!


I love staying active in Boise through biking, but can also be found nerding out on all things Urban Planning, hiking or walking near the river, playing Ultimate Frisbee, walking around downtown, going to Treefort and finding new events to attend and learn from. My goals in life include living a car free lifestyle, and continuing to creating connections and great memories throughout Boise!

My newest ride is Kronk the Centurion Mixte. I came to BBP with little mechanic ability, so I’ve taken the opportunity to learn some bike mechanics while fixing Kronk up and feel empowered getting to know bicycles and customizing my own, with my own hands!
