How long have you been cycling?

I started BMX racing when I was 11, so about 10-11 years now. Then I started riding MTB and road for fun about 5 years ago.


What drew you to coaching?

Honestly, I started coaching because some parents at my local track asked if I was willing to coach their young riders and I figured it was a great way to make some extra cash while I was in high school. However, since then my passion for coaching has grown and I love the position it has brought me to.

What’s your favorite part about coaching?

BMX gave me so much from some of my greatest accomplishments to many life lessons. Therefore, one of my favorite parts of coaching is seeing and being a part of the athlete’s growth as they learn these same life lessons and accomplish some of their greatest goals.


What advice would you give to other women about getting into coaching?

I would say to just be confident in your knowledge, coaching skillset, ability, and never think less of yourself if you need extra support in certain areas.


What’s your dream bike?

My dream bike would be for Liv to break into the BMX racing scene, I would definitely want one of those if they made them!
