I was born and raised in WI. I love to travel around. I have been cycling for a few years especially since travel and has been difficult. I started road biking and within a few months road my first century. I am working toward riding the 200K Horribly Hilly Hundreds, and LotoJa biek rides as well as migrating to gravel to ride DAMn (240 miles) and Unbound. I still run, hike, and swim on occasion. When I complete a few of my cycling goals I will begin to ramp up my swiming and running training for a few Ironman competions. I work as a research administrator at UW Madison and earned my MBA at WGU. I have studied marketing extensively and contracted to do social media campaigns as a side job for local small businesses. I do not personally use social media except strava and linkedin. However, I have worked with them professionally. I would not have a concern creating accounts and gaining followers as a brand ambassador.
