My background

I grew up in Sacramento, California, and received a bachelor of arts in psychology from California State University Sacramento and a master of arts in human resources from Webster University. 

After moving to Kansas City and living in Chicago for several years, my husband Pete and I wanted to move west and landed in Denver in 2005. We have two daughters, ages 12 and 13, who have activities and sports schedules that sometimes make my head spin.

On charity


At StarCycle (in Centennial), we have a beautiful studio with 30 bikes that are used during our 21 scheduled classes per week. However, we realized that we could put those bikes to work during non-class times, and offer them as an alternative to regular fundraisers — a healthier alternative to many.

We partner with local charities and schools to hold a special ride in their honor at no cost — other than asking riders for donations. One hundred percent of money raised goes to the charity. We have partnered with several local charities in the past and will be riding for the Gabby Krause Foundation, which sponsors Bags of Fun — bags filled with toys for children facing cancer and other long-term illnesses — at 10 a.m. on March 11.

On health


Being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, becoming and staying healthy became the focal point of my life. After treatments, I began running to stay fit, which eventually turned into a passion. 

Fun fact

I grew up competing in many National Muzzle Loading Rifle competitions, which included target shooting and tomahawk throwing, while dressed in traditional mountain woman attire, buckskins and all — and I was pretty dang good at it.
