Your favourite Quote: “Courage is not having the strength to go on. It is going on when you don’t have the strength”

Why do you ride? To fall into that beat and be swept away by the music, to feel safe in those four walls, let go, give the mind and soul a break. WPG helped me deal with my depression and anxiety on a new level.

What is your favourite thing about Winnipeg? The Jets! They’ve made this city hit another level. The whiteout street parties really brought our city together and just showed how amazing Winnipeg really is!

How would you describe your class? Take a look within yourself. Challenge those inner demons. Feel safe, let go, and leave feeling empowered, strong and like you just had a 50 minute life break.

What’s the number one thing on your bucket list? Travel, travel, travel! Absolutely everywhere! I’ve checked off quite a few places already, but I will never stop exploring!

Your Ride or Die Tracks? SIA – unstoppable, Cardi B – Bodak Yellow, Lil John & LMFAO – Outta Your Mind… and really the list goes on, just depends on what mood I am in!

If you had to go toe to toe in a dance off against celebrity who would it be? Ryan Reynolds, too dance battle with and just to look at.

Describe your alter ego? She’s a warrior! Probably would wear leather. She’s confident, and kind of loves seeing you drip sweat in pain (the good kind obviously)!

If a movie was made about your life who would play you and what song would be in the opening credits? Hayden Panettiere (in heals cause she’s tiny). Get Ugly by Jason Derulo.

What Inspires you at WPG CYCLE? I have never been to a more supportive, empowering community in my life. The commitment that each person makes to come ride is inspiring! I’ve also been inspired by myself, and the journey I’ve had at WPG Cycle, it has really changed my life and has only happened because of the amazing people: riders, inspirators, and hype crew that make WPG Cycle my safe place.
