In her own words...
Why are you involved in MMTA?
I was first introduced to the work on the trail system as a volunteer with BSA Troop 236 in 2019/20 timeframe. As the trail system grew, our Scouts volunteered there more and more as a Troop. Fast forward to today, I’m on the trails multiple times a week on my mountain bike so it’s only fair that I give back and not just take. So when I was asked to serve on the board, I did not hesitate.
If you could only pick one activity on the trails, what would it be?
Mountain biking for sure! I like to go fast. If I could make it all downhill, I would never go home.
What is something no-one else knows about you?
Got married on a ski slope and had to get a ski patroller friend to be a witness.
What other organizations are you passionate about?
Boy Scouts of America and Children’s Miracle Network
Building Trails, Building Community.
