Sam started mountain biking later in life unlike a lot of her riding buddies. In 2007, after years of running a distribution firm and doing the city run around, she decided to move from the Tri-cities and come to Whistler. It was her mission for life to be the exact opposite of what it had been. She decided to embrace everything Whistler had to offer and mountain biking was at the top of the list. She bought my first bike in 2008 and it has literally been all downhill from there! Mountain biking has truly turned into a passion that fuels life, and her goal is to share and empower others.

She now spends her time working with the youth of the Sea to Sky Corridor through the WORCA youth programs, and collaborating with the other amazing advocates in women specifics events around BC
