What I Love:

Playing in two orchestras and lots of reading keeps this band geek and book nerd super happy! I also enjoy biking around Madison, jogging lakeside or on the state trails, relaxing with a local brew/glass of wine, spending time with my husband and our sweet Boston Terrier, Sheldon, and visiting my family and my six nieces and nephews.

My Favorite Ride:

Participating in my very first group ride doing the Trek100 in 2022 was surreal. The warm summer sunshine enveloping the rolling Wisconsin countryside was just beautiful. It was the longest I have ever ridden in one day, and I can't wait to do it again!
