What’s your fitness background?

I have been involved with sports my whole life. From soccer, softball, volleyball, track, tennis...etc., it's been part of every aspect of growing up.

In college, I swam for Illinois State University and then continued my fitness with getting involved with the sport of triathlons. Combining swimming, running and cycling, I found that this was something I truly loved. I've completed two Ironmans, traveled all over to compete, and continue to love tri-training. I have come to love cycling indoors.

Any cycling, academic background or certifications?

Arts Technology Degree with a Fine Arts Focus in Painting and Photography.

Certified by Schwinn as an Indoor Cycling instructor.

What do you like about cycling at Ethos?

The instructors, the mission, and the vibe of what true cycling is and bringing that to the Bloomington community. And of course the making the playlists.
