What’s playing on your iPod right now?
I don’t have an iPod! When driving I listen to talk radio. At home I’m probably on my MacBook working. And on the bike, I enjoy listening to nature.

My favorite NCNCA race is…
I don’t think I can pick one. There are many fantastic races. We’re very fortunate to have so many options. I like stage races, windy races, and TT’s.

What do you do for a living? 
Multi Line Sales Representative based in Sacramento, covering the Central Valley/Redding/Reno. I sell mid to high end commercial furnishings through dealer distribution channel. I call on interior design firms/specifiers as well.

When I’m not on my bike you might find me…. With family, my husband Steve and our 2 pugs Bodie and Phil!

What’s your favorite quote?
I don’t have a favorite quote. What inspires me? I believe that hard work, persistence, and performance lead to results. I believe in God. And I believe in love; my husband, family and friendships are most important to me.
