Where are you from, where are you based out of? 

  • I grew up in Huntington Beach, CA and didn’t make it too far as I now live in Aliso Viejo, CA.

How did you get started in the bike industry and when?

  • I come from a long line of cycling enthusiasts so coming into the cycling industry was a natural thing for me. I was fortunate to work alongside my dad for some time at Felt Bicycles from 2013-June 2018

What do you like about being apart of the STEPS demo driver? 

  • I love being able to assist them at events when I can. Speaking with consumers and sharing my love for bikes is a hard thing to beat.

What is the weirdest thing you’ve seen out on the trail? 

  • I haven’t seen a lot of weird things, but seeing people riding around with no helmet on lights me up. Wear your helmet!

Favorite Place to Ride?

  • I have a lot…I learned to ride in Auburn, California so I have a soft spot for those trails. My home trails in Laguna are awesome, Whistler is all time, North Van is epic, there are too many to name.

Favorite Food?

  • Mexican.

Favorite place to ride a SHIMANO STEPS city bike? To work, beats the traffic and I don’t have to wear a chamois!

  • How do you like your coffee? With lots of creamer.  

Favorite Disney movie?

  • Pocahontas, I have Cherokee descent and as a kid I was obsessed. I had the sheets, lunch box, moccasins, everything.

Favorite Breakfast Cereal?

  • CT Crunch all day.

Childhood nickname?

  • Megs, Meggers, Meggy, so many options.

What are three things that are still on your lifetime bucket list?

  • Race a BME, take my dad to a world series baseball game, and get to play with a liter of golden retrievers.

Cats or dogs?

  • Dogs.

Favorite Dessert food? 

  • Froyo, icecream, gelato, all that.  

Podcasts or music?

  • Tough question, I like learning new things from podcasts but also find myself being the embarrassing girl you catch screaming songs in the car next to you at a red light.

Favorite candy?

  • I rarely eat candy but if I do Reeses takes the cake.
