From Strand Training

Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, I now call Whistler my home. I have spent the last 15 years traveling the globe as a professional mountain bike athlete and brand ambassador – I have represented Canada at the Downhill World Championships, been in countless ad campaigns and magazine articles and played a pivotal role with the introduction of women’s specific mountain bike events.  In addition, I have an established reputation as a world renowned mountain bike coach and have contributed to the success of many mountain bike riders and athletes.


After obtaining my degree in Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia and getting my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, I began training recreational, elite and aspiring athletes of all disciplines.
