Born and raised in Tucson , Arizona , I spent too many years away. Now I’m back and loving all the biking and hiking opportunities in my sunny homeland! In my years away, I cycled seriously on road teams and on teams for 24-hour mountain biking events. I’ve built parts of the Appalachian Trail and parts of the Buttermilk Trail in downtown Richmond , VA. As part of my training for the AZ Trail 300, I will be commuting 40 miles round-trip to work, as soon as I can wake up early enough. My professional training is in urban planning and economic development; I am currently Community Communications Coordinator for the Town of Sahuarita .
