What is your favorite quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
"Well behaved women seldom make history."

What was your favorite sport in middle school?
I loved playing hockey because: 1) I love the cold; 2) I love going fast; 3) my teammates were amazing; 4) it's a badass sport.  

Can you share your first sports bra experience?
I remember starting to wear "training bras" which didn't do much to support anything. I was embarrassed when my mom finally bought me a high quality bra, but appreciated the compression.  

What is your absolutely favorite piece of #flystyle and why?
I love all of the Flyout pieces, but the Flyout long sleeve is my go-to since it is so dang light while absorbing all my sweat. 

If you could give one piece of advice to a 12 year old girl, what would it be? 
Do your best to follow your passions and be authentic self, no matter what others think. 

Tell us about your favorite place you have ever traveled to:
After racing in Europe a couple years ago, I traveled throughout Scandinavia. I loved Norway for the fjords, gravlox, and social welfare system.  

What alternative career do you fantasize about?
I am really excited to be done with my Master of Social Work degree after this year, and I really hope I'm able to get a job in prevention of sexual violence.  

What is your superpower?  
My superpower is my ability to take action on dismantling systematic problems.
